Eliza Wright For Sale Gallery Thistles
The background is hand-painted silk treated with salt. This is a rather haphazard method of painting, since you can never predict exactly how it's going to turn out. This was a heavier piece of silk than I normally use and the salt did not work in the usual way. Some of the patterns reminded me of the heads of thistles so I just went ahead and embroidered them in various stitches using Pearsall's Silk.
The size of the embroidery is about 8.75 cm (3.50") by 10.5 cm (4.50:).
The size including the mount is about 23 cm (9") by 23.5 cm (9.25")
The price (excluding postage) is £65.00. If you are interested in this piece of embroidery, please contact me via the Enquiry form.
