Having spent so much time on black-very odd for someone who really likes colour- I rebelled yesterday and made a piece of felt. I have been working on a whole series of felt pictures on floating leaves for an exhibition in December , the autmn leaves floating on the surface of water or in the small streams that abound here. There is one that goes across the road where I walk the dogs sometimes. I wasn't thinking of anything when I made this felt just laying down fibres and adding layers of colour with lots of raw silk. The picture above is the result. I realised then that my subconcious had made a floating leaves pictrue but here the leaves are fragmented and broken down. I like it but I have to admit the photograph is not brilliant and does not do justice to the complex colours.
