Artist Marian Kessler credits her sense of colour to growing up in the spectacular landscapes of northern New Mexico.
Kessler developed a deep-rooted love of different artistic media from the patchwork of cultures in the American Southwest. Her intricate mixed media collages are influenced by her interests in archaeology and folk art, science and myth, as well as a strong belief in the validity of fine craft as an art form.
We think of her needlepoint canvases as an art form as well! Majolica II (above) is one of series by Kessler.
Available in several sizes. Will make a terrific seat cushion.
Here's a little something to take with you that I made, said Paula to her son as he packed for college.
What a wonderful way to give a little of yourself and a terrific use of a small canvas!
Thanks for sharing this with us Paula!
When I first went on Art Needlepoint's website, I couldn’t' believe the variety of canvases that were offered, each better than the next. When I ordered the canvases, I finally decided that I wanted to try Chaim Parchi's “The five books of Moses".
I ordered all of the threads with the canvases, all at once. The real thrill was that I ordered 6 canvases and got 2 for free. You must be think "she must be crazy", to get so many canvases at once. I must say when I received the canvases, and saw the detail that was in them, I didn't know how or if they were going to be as nice as the original works.
At this point, I consider this an investment, since needlepointing has become a full time interest for me.
