Striking Sunset Original Art

Price: $500.00

Size: 16 x 16

Last month (February) there was a sunset with such remarkable color and brilliance that people were calling each other to have a look out the window. Before the last streaks of color had faded from the sky I had already pulled out my dyed wool and started blending shades to match what I had seen. Dinner was late that night... I was compelled to get the color recorded while it was still fresh in my mind. Fortunately I'd created a blank wool canvas earlier in the week so I had a surface to work on. I took the liberty of not covering the landscape in snow as it was that evening. This vibrant felted artwork is the result.

The artwork is presented in a 1 1/2" wood frame, recessed shadowbox style without glass. The frame is wired for hanging.

The entire artwork is made with wool, and made by hand. For the base, the wool panel or wool "canvas", I start by layering undyed wool fiber in even layers, alternating direction for each layer. I use special needles with tiny angled nicks, called felting needles, to tack all those layers together into the shape and size that I want for my artwork. When this canvas is completed I can begin working on the art using dyed wool and alpaca fiber. I use those same needles to lightly tack my design in position in preparation for the wet felting process. The canvas with the imagery is wetted with soapy warm water, then rubbed and rolled to get all of the wool fibers to physically lock together into one solid piece of wool felt. There is a lot of rinsing to get rid of the soap, then pressing and drying. I hand stitch carpeting to the back of the work. This enables me to mount the artwork in the frame without affecting the felt.
