From Photo To Fiber Art 3

In the last 2 posts I talked about art that referenced photos.  Today I’m focusing on the photo itself as/in art.

One of my most recent finishes is just that.  I ‘ll show you a peek at it since it’s one that I will send in for submission to an exhibit so I want to hold off on publishing pictures of it until then.  SO… here’s a small section of one titled “All’s Well Under The Sun.”

All's One...detail. 2. wm. web

Small Detail of “All’s One Under The Sun.”


In this detail alone, there are parts of 3 different photos, yet I think this small section could stand alone as a finished piece.

This one was a true challenge though!  I went through a zillion attempts before I finished this one.  I used at least one, almost 2 entire sets of ink cartridges and rejected so many WIPS it’s not funny!

I posted a couple of them in January.  That’s how long I’ve been struggling with this one; but in the end, I’m pretty satisfied with the the results whether it gets accepted or not.

It’s for the SAQA call for art. “Concrete and Grasslands” so it won’t even be submitted until September for an exhibit that won’t open until June of 2016.

Once again, I’m linking up with Nina Marie’s Off The Wall Friday.




  1. Janis. This was worth all your effort and all your ink! What a truly lovely piece.


  2. Thanks Trish. This is just a small section of the piece but I’ll show the whole thing when I either get a rejection or when it’s put oh exhibit.

    Psst…the link to your January post isn’t working. You already know I love these new works.


  7. Thank you! If at first you don’t succeed….I tried again and I think I got it right this time.
