New Hope, in technicolor
Part of my ongoing train series which transforms the smokey plumes of vintage locomotives into playful clouds of color and swirl.
The embroidery is created directly onto the vintage postcard using French cotton embroidery thread and hand-dyed silk thread. The original image is of Pennsylvania's New Hope Steam Railway.
The vintage postcard measures 3 1/2"x5 1/2" and includes about 19" of threaded smoke trailing behind the postcard. It will arrive in a complimentary frame to hold the free-flowing strands in place. The smoke plumes can be rearranged as desired, if reframed in the future. The artwork will be signed and dated in pencil on the back.
Please note: Please email if you'd like a video of the piece in detail, as the frame is very wide and difficult to capture fully in the photograph. The frame is photographed vertically for you to view the length, but it is to be hung horizontally (landscape).
