The old lace I got from a friend was too good to resist. As soon as I had it in the house I started playing with it. It is just beautiful. I try to evoke nostalgia and beauty in my fabric paintings. A hint of cultural things past. A timeless beauty that can easily delight in the 21st century. Feminine but not too pink, female but without the cleavage. It is a technical challenge to paint lace and silk but the technical aspect is always inferior to the vision I want to portray.
