I Don't Know Why, I Just Do - Yes, I Paint Fabric!

When I start to paint a piece of fabric I usually have no idea what I am going to do until I pick up the brush, dip it in the paint and put the brush to the fabric.

This is one of the fabrics I painted today. I used a thinned down paint and either touched the brush to the slightly dampened fabric or just threw the paint from the brush - Jackson Pollock move over!

This was a piece of fabric I started some time ago. I added more paint to it and now I consider it finished.

This is another piece that just needed additional detail to call it complete.

The colors in this piece of fabric are softer than those I customarily use. I am so pleased with this piece of fabric I think it is complete without any additional decoration.

I am really enjoying creating these fabrics and I am anxious to use them in some of my new work.

Kay, thanks for posting about these on QuiltArt - what eye candy!! I love the 2nd one down that you said you began awhile ago. It reminds me of lots of overlays of sheer fabric. Gorgeous!
