After painting that first piece, I was hooked and decided to "play" a bit more when I hit on the idea of making a quilted painting. I've since played some more--this time changing things up a bit because I learned a few things with the first one.
I've learned a few more things this go round, also. In fact, I have plans for a third quilted painting. I've discovered that I prefer to create the painting on the long-arm switching back and forth between painting and quilting.
I also discovered that I can achieve a much cleaner, whiter cotton boll using applique, which I didn't use in the first painting.
And lastly, I found a clear gesso which means I don't need as many layers of paint. I can also paint on darker fabrics.
Although I don't necessarily like all of the cotton bolls on this piece, I'm enjoying this combination of painting and quilting and have a feeling that I'm going to keep playing for a while at least.
