'After Rothko' Wall Hanging

Choosing colors of roving...


                                                  ...and beginning our layout.



                                    Filling in the rectangular 'frame' with wool roving.



                            My daughter was the 'conceptual artist' on this project...



                                          ...her sole 'hands on' duty? Wetting it out! :)



                                                    Mid-way through felting.



                                                             The finished felt.



                              We used our drum carder to make art batts for this project...


                                      ...blending various solid hues of blue and pink.
                                
                                  
                                     
                                                   The finished wall hanging.


                               My daughter wanted a felted 'art piece' for her wall...

                                              ...in the style of Mark Rothko.

                                           So, before commencing work...

                                        ...she chose colors that pleased her...

                             ...and we made custom batts in variegated colors.

                                   After that, it was a simple flat felt project...

                                    ...and it was completed in a jiffy! :)

                                      Next time: a plain Ikea light fixture...

                                                   ...becomes a flower!
