Pearls On A String no.3 brings together playful and whimsical mark making, layered painting and drawing, as well as collage, embroidery and beads to create a little meditative drawing.
The drawing in the lower portion alludes to writing, a very playful layering of meandering lines in India ink. On the upper section a whimsical bird poses for a portrait amid a shower of decorative stitches and tiny pearl beads. The bird in this piece is drawn with India ink and acrylic on a dry used teabag, which is then dipped in beeswax and sewn to the handmade paper.
Artwork measures 5×5", mounted on masonite.
