FLOWER!

This was just the challenge I needed to take a break and create something just for fun :)

I've chosen the style of one of my favourite artistic movement: Futurism.
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futurism )
Flowers are not futurist theme so I've used them trying to add to the composition a sense of speed and using letters that floats free.

Technique: This is a white wholecloth I painted with paintstiks using the technique of masks. Then I've added freehand machine quilting.

Thanks for your comments :)

This is fantastic Silvia! I have never heard of Futurism before. I'll have to look into it. You have most certainly conveyed 'speed'! Wonderful piece!
