I began this work by needlefelting the river, layering wool roving and silk snippets and fibers to build up the depth, textures, and transparencies of the river. The banks are also needlefelted with silks and wool, and couched lace. The borders are silks that I free-form pleated and manipulated. I then layered it with batting and a backing fabric, and heavily quilted and stitched it to add even more texture, depth and movement.
The size is 54”h x 43”w.
