“Beetles” by Susan Brubaker Knapp
Copyright 2014
(10.5"x 29")
This piece is based on sketches I made from photos of a friend’s collection of mounted insects. I stitched the beetles first with black thread on white fabric, then painted them. To make the texture in the background, I quilted a tight meander before rubbing paint over the raised areas created by the quilting.
