The Steve McCurry Quilt
For some time now I have been thinking about creating a quilt that celebrates age and the wisdom centred on aged visages. Late last year I requested permission to use some of Steve McCurry's wonderful photos as a starting point for my thread painting of the faces and expressions. I was so delighted when the permission was granted as long as I acknowledged the source of the thread painting and allowed the work to be featured on their gallery. So here is the first raw thread paint. It is still in its A4 stage and is not applied to the finished idea for the quilt. I will probably do all the images before I look at appliquing them onto the background.
