Life 2 - Be the change you want. Finished?

Life 2. Be The Change You Want.

(56" x 39")

Applique, free machining, acrylic paint.

 For some reason, this body has been difficult to paint. It might be because I'm doing it from a photo taken with flash, and the picture is flat without much tone....I don't know. Perhaps I'm not quite in the zone!

Anyway, for what it's worth, here's the mostly finished piece. I have to edge/border, but that's all.


  1. She's beautiful Annabel and the skin tone is just right.

  2. I can't say how much I love this!!

  3. Your hard work paid off Annabel. The close ups reveal the beauty.

  4. Hi Annabel, this is wonderful I love the detailed pics and all the writting on the body. Great work!

  5. Breathtaking: both the conception of the idea and the execution of the actual quilt.


  6. Another powerful piece - I am so in awe of your talent. Hoping some of it will rub off on me... ;-)

  7. Doh! Ladies, thank you! I really appreciate your supportive comments.xx

  8. I love this artwork. It's very funky and catches her eye right away. A bold and powerful image. Beautiful and rememberable artwork.


Portrait in parts

For this portrait I'm starting off by using some stencils and stamps to make a background. I especially like the stencil with the jumble...
