I'm Still Stitching!


Last week I went on a school trip to The Herbert Art Gallery to see Street Art , a touring exhibition from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
The work on show is from many well know street art artists including Banksy and Shepard Fairey.
I was surprised to find some very thought provoking images and a wide use of materials which had been used in unusual and creative ways.
This included a tree made of old industrial timber pieces and painted with African style patterns and faces, which seemed to me to represent an urban jungle.
The children also attended a work shop to produce their own street art and had a very enjoyable, busy afternoon.
I'm off on another school trip at the weekend to visit the art galleries in Birmingham which I hope to tell you about next week.
 I spent all last weekend on my own work and I'm stitching on many new landscapes for the exhibition.
Bye for now
Michala

I just love the simplicity of these two embroideries. The composition is perfect it draws you into the picture until you cant leave without looking at every little detail.

The Exhibition must have been great to see, you are so fortunate to be able to have access to those places.

Your two new tree-scapes are as lovely as the earlier ones - I never tire of seeing them. The school trips sound great fun and very interesting - lucky children.
