While I was painting fabric today a friend wanted to place a friendly bet with me on the Preakness. This friend has lived in "Horse Country" for two thirds of their life. I chose my horse second and picked - are you ready for this - Lookin At Lucky.
Yes, I picked the winner and my friends horse didn't even show.
It makes me feel good to beat someone from Ocala where 10 of the 12 horses have connections! I won't mention that person's name because if I did they would not be able to show their face in church today after losing to such a relative newcomer to the area!
Even the first piece of fabric I painted today was reminiscent of the Black-Eyed Susan, the state flower of Maryland. A blanket of Black-Eyed Susans is draped across the shoulders of the winning horse. Yes, it's all about color here at Qults + Color!
This is the same piece of fabric that I showed you on Friday when I first experimented with flour paste resist. I added another design layer to this piece today and I am very pleased with it. I created two additional pieces to use with this in a wall piece.
This piece of fabric was created to complement the Black-Eyed Susan piece.
This is the other piece I created to complement the Black-Eyed Susan fabric.
Stay tuned to see what I do with these fabrics.
I also painted a lot of smaller pieces of fabric today that I will share with you at a later date.
