A Rose Amongst The Thorns
The faint sweet smell of the Dog Rose whiffs its way through the air attracting the attention of this peckish wood mouse. After a prickly, tentative climb through the arching stems and many thorns, he treasures the sight of a beautiful cluster of pale pink roses. Inhaling the air around him, he chooses what bud to eat first.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the mouse, roses, leaves and stem were achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the warm fur of the mouse to the delicate, soft roses
