60’s deer painted

I painted the little deer using opaque paints with white because I wanted him to feel more like a solid object, since those figurines were always made of glass or plastic. I also wanted it to have a brighter cheerier look than the more serious painting referenced background so it is painted using a warmer more colorful brown.

    Ii have a difficult time finding a way to ensure equal time for paints, wools and quilts but you seem to carry it off with great aplomb !

    Amazing! I love the little deer’s eye. That blue leaves no doubt about his kitschy origins!

  4. Oh this is going to be a spectacular quilt. I remember having a plastic deer similar to that growing up. Didn’t everyone in the 70s have one? Almost mandatory it seemed. 🙂

    He looks like like the little plastic dears used to look like! I love that you are showing what you are doing on your blog. Thank you.

    What a hoot! I love this. You are a genius in the way you use paint on fabric.

    I love the real deer’s expression. “MUTANT! Get away from me!” LOL Great job, seriously!

  8. Ha ha, thanks for the encouragement everybody!

    Marie, I don’t necessarily juggle everything all that well, its just that usually when I finish making a big quilt like this, I really need to do something different and tap into another part of my brain. So I usually turn to knitting for a while, then when I want to start painting again I opt for some smaller scale mixed media until i am ready to take on the challenge of a big intense quilt project again.
