sewing painted canvas wire drawing holiday memories lunch cafe France

The idea development of these pieces has been very exciting; such as how the wire writing on Coutellerie Deux inspired me to do the wire drawing on this canvas. I realised that I found the joins ( in wire) quite exquisite, it wasn’t just the wire outline that appealed to me.  The pink/lilac striped fabric was the nearest I could source, to the striped cotton on Coutellerie Un, which was reminiscent of the old Frenchman’s shirt. The cutlery with the wine glass has now featured on all three canvases and I like the various ways in which they have been produced.
