52 Weeks of Felt Paintings - Week 49
I had a wet felting extravaganza last week!  I have some beautiful rovings, and they were just begging to be wet felted.  So here are four pretty versions of a sunset.

I shared this photo on social media, but I want to share it here also.  These are before and after shots of each of these sunsets.  The left side is the loose wool, composed and layered, and the right side is after the painting is wet felted and dried.  Cool, right?

Enjoy your weekend friends!
52 Weeks of Felt Paintings - Week 46
I did another wet felted painting for this week and was reminded of how much I love the process.  The wool is layered and composed, dampened, and then rubbed with special tools (or not-so-special tools like bubble wrap) and soap to create a slick friction.  The friction makes the wool fibers felt together and stick together permanently, more or less. 

This piece reminds me so much of the Scottish highlands.  Scotland has been my very favorite place that my husband and I have traveled so far.  It's just so, so beautiful.  Also, whisky. I'm a big fan now after that trip...

Now I'm off to do more wet felting!  And have some whisky. Have a great weekend!

52 Weeks of Felt Paintings - Week 11
I've fallen a bit behind on my 52 Weeks project for this year. But no worries--we'll catch up together!  I'll be posting two new paintings a week until I'm on track. 

This one was another wet felting experiment.  The background and yellow base of the flowers were all wet felted.  Then I needle felted the stems and flower details.  This painting is super thin.  And I just love these colors. I wanted to make it have a painterly feel--like the wool was added with loose brushstrokes.

See you tomorrow with another painting!
