I'm doing a series of blogs with a little bit of background information about some of the Harris Tweed "paintings" in my exhibition. at the Bakehouse Gallery in Alnwick this summer.
"Winter Fields is an imaginary winter landscape with a hare running across the snow under a full moon. There are lots of legends from around the world linking hares to the full moon. For example the Celts believed that the goddess Eostre changed into a hare at the full moon.
This picture is all about blue and blue is my favourite colour, especially teal. Therefore I do love doing winter scenes and pictures that involve sea and sky. The background Harris Tweed in this picture is one of my all time favourites. But sadly I didn't buy very much and I've only got enough left to do a couple more pictures.
I am a Northumberland based textile artist and I create needle felted paintings with Harris Tweed and wool yarns.
