This piece "impressionistic", sort of a blend of Monet, Gauguin, and VanGogh? It is a collage type 'painting using nothing but paper-towel mop-up pieces from my dye sessions. The pieces are as tiny as less than 1/8th inch and up, all torn and glued onto a muslin backing that was fused to fleece batting. After all the pieces were in place, I finished with a Matte Medium.
I am posting two views of my (unfinished) piece. My Art Critic (read hubby) wants me to leave it with ragged edges showing. My question to you is ...would it look better, more finished, trimmed ?
Also, any suggestions for quilting? There is so much tiny detail in the piece, I worry that quilting could interfere...advice? This technique quilts easily, but I'd hate to ruin it.
It measures 18"x28"
Your opinions and advice would be most gratefully received
