I showed you half of the van Gogh-inspired fabric postcards I obtained through Postmark’d Art, the international group of fabric artists I am fortunate to be a part of, last week. Here are the other four of the collection.
Debbie Geistweidt of Texas was inspired by Cypresses. Her fabric collage is covered with sparkling tulle and heavily stitched.
Jan Johnson of Nebraska was drawn to Sheaves of Wheat. I’m sure her part of the country had an influence there.
Janet Hartje of Minnesota used a fused-raw-edge applique technique and Pentel dye sticks to mimic Sunflowers.
Debra Svedberg of Minnesota said that she is intrigued by van Gogh’s use of the impasto paint stroke. She used embroidery floss to ‘paint’ Les Alyscamps. Her focus was to capture the trees as van Gogh did — vivid with autumn brilliance. I’m sure you’ll agree that she was successful!
There are ten themes to choose from each time we trade. Among the theme choices for our next round of trading are Chagall, Klee and Monet (we seem to be on an artist kick). I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with! Now can you see why I’ve been creating and trading fabric postcards since 2004?
