Pileated Woodpecker is a fabric art collage, designed from a woodpecker I photographed during a hike on Mt. Monadnock in NH.
The woodpecker is dark navy blue raw silk, red faux leather, and cotton prints and hand dyed fabrics. The background is cotton print and hand-dyed fabrics, created using a fused applique method, then satin stitched and free-motion top-stitched with cotton embroidery thread.
The border is a brown raw silk, gallery wrapped on a stretched canvas frame, wired for hanging.
