Cicadas on Yellow




“Cicadas on Yellow” is a piece I finished this week, and am in the process of facing. I loved painting these guys so much that I’d like to do a few more pieces featuring them. These are the annual “dogday” Neotibicen cicadas common in North Carolina. This piece will be about 21 x 24" and I’ll price it once it is faced. White cotton fabric, acrylic textile paint, cotton batting, cotton thread, cotton backing fabric, interfacing. Wholecloth painted, free-motion machine quilted.

    1. I generally used PRO Chemical & Dye's transparent textile paint. For more information on my technique and materials, please see this blog post: https://wwwbluemoonriver.blogspot.com/2014/01/faqs-wholecloth-painting.html

  2. This is stunning. I love the vibrant colors. I paint on Konami cotton and have been using craft acrylics with textile medium, but it is still too stiff. What is your favorite cotton fabric and favorite textile paint. I need to invest.
