Mossy Haven – Felt “Painting”
Bonnieblink Studio“Mossy Haven”
Tracey McCracken Palmer is a true inspiration.
Her felted art work is exquisite, realistic and rich.
Her work can be seen at the Twigs and Leaves Gallery
in Waynesville, NC and at the Southern Highland Craft Guild
in Biltmore Village at Asheville, NC.
“For “Mossy Haven” I used a photo I took a few years ago
of a wonderful mossy bank, where the huge rounded clumps of moss growing
on the stones coming down from the tree just thrilled me when I saw it.
I knew it would be a felting one day! I changed it just a bit,
making the tree larger and digging the fox a cozy spot for a nap
below the tree roots. I also added the trail up to her mossy haven.
I wet felted the basic scene, leaving much of the mistiness
in the background untouched, then needle felted the details
in the trees, moss & fox”
