Kaylene Maalste – Artist style #4
Inspiration: Franz Marc not only painted in oils etc he created prints using wood cuts. Some of these prints are simplistic and other very involved around the subject. I chose a painting called “Seated Imaginary Animal.”
The cat pose I chose is one of a cat looking back. The background material is an off white cotton, I made a template of the cat and drew around this on the cotton. Using some of the design elements form the original painting I hand drew these around the cat. The quilt is handstitched with variations of running stitch in blacks, browns, red, turquoise and white embroidery threads.
