I’m completely charmed by Sarajo Frieden’s wonderful, whimsical embroidery. She just posted a new lot on flickr. (And she has a lovely website.)
Here we have “Stitched Bird with Coat,” “Leaf Lady,” and “Pocket Park.” The leaf lady does not look pleased. She looks like she’s saying: “Yeah, you try being covered with leaves.” The lady with the plant: “My plant and I are on important business.” The bird: “Eternal vigilance is the price of plumage.”
Gouache on paper with collage and embroidery, done in collaboration with equally crafty Marci Boudreau. Love!!
UPDATE. Funny comment from Giulia:
“Marvelous. I agree with Tina about the (top) bird. I would add: sardonic & knowing. She carries off that red chapeau beautifully:) I have no idea why, but Diana Vreeland comes to mind. Maybe the noble nose & the red hat? Everything comme il faut? Forgive the franglais. I shall stop now.”0
