Leilani. I think I have seen your work before. It is amazing!
Wow! your a fabric painter of portraits!
Leilani, you just keep getting better and better!! This is stunning! I hope your freind appreciates your skills and talent.
Great job, very inspiring!
I am so amazed at how you can do this! It is so stunning! Wow!!!!
How did you do his face? Wonderful portrait.
Thank you. His face is piece of marbled fabric. I colour and shade with pencils to get the likeness. I searched for just the right fabric for the sunglasses. I found a piece of brown sheer ribbon that was perfect. I wanted to be able to see the eyes and not just have black blobs for the glasses. Minimal quilting on this one it was only 10"x12"
Leilani - I am always awed by the art quilts you post!!!!! Yours are always so lifelike.
