Trumpet Swan : Work in progress

Work in progress: Trumpet Swan
Something I’ve been working on for a while, combining more than a few of my most loved visual treats. Birds, gingham, woven pinstripe, text on a fabric selvedge, screen printed fabric and a splash of lyric. Inspired by a day spent filled with acoustic music in a special nature reserve surrounded by a London urban landscape. At first it was intended to be a cushion but as ever I am torn between the use of machine over hand embroidery, aesthetic over function… and I’m not sure if a stretched canvas would work better, again something I’ve not used in a while… a work in progress it stays…
