My challenge for this year is using Art Nouveau expressions in portrait.




The Sun.

The Art Nouveau movement in the USA was, above all, synonym with Louis Comfort Tiffany,especially in glassware. Louis John Read was a graphic artist and his design "The Sun" was an advertisement for a newspaper.

Raw edge appliqué, stitched down.

Machine quilted, hand embroidery and some accents with "Inktense®" pens.

Pillow case binding and hand stitched
