Needle felting

My beloved mountain in Caracas, El Avila, Waraira Repano, the indigenous name, that gives its majestic look to our capital. You always know where the North is….where the Avila is! I really miss its looks! I have done several, and all are different, but it is the same Avila!

Needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving on wool fabric

Framed

5″ x 7″

This was a very special experience. I saw a picture of some mushrooms in strange colors, and it occurred to me I could something similar. I think it came out good. My son told me that they looked as those spsychedelic mushrooms, so that is why the name. Love them!

Facebook Live

This is the tour of my studio in Facebook Live that I made on July 9th, 2020. It was an interesting experience. It was made to promote our Show online of the Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County, PA, where many local artists are exhibiting and selling their works. Visit http://www.bucksarts.org/online.

It is really a nice therapy to make these small items, mixing colors and trying to make shapes. Easy to wear!

Tapestry

Wool , polyester, linen and cotton yarn, strips of wool fabric on linen warp

Mounted on a stick from the garden

It was fun to make this piece, I started not knowing what I was going to weave, which happens almost every time I start a small tapestry. Suddenly a tree and flowers appeared, the mountains in the back got natural as I worked.

Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, so full of color they can be all kind of tones of pink, red, whites.. I was so much fun to make them from a bunch I collected in our garden. Hope that you like it!

colors in the sky

Designed and felted by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2020

Needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving on wool fabric

Framed

4″ x 8″

Fun to make sunsets in felting, playing with the colors. Practicing a different way of felting without needles, just putting the fibers one on top of the other, and pressing all with the glass of the frame, interesting effects, you never know how the fiber is going to be.

my quarantine challenge

Designed by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2020

Rug hooking, needle felting and painting

Hand dyed wool roving, hand dyed wool fabric, markers

Mounted on a canvas

6″ x 6″

This is a #kdmstudio30daychallenge that I did. It was fun because each day I had to make something about the day. So one day I made bread, the other I found lilies, another I was sleepy, and so on. I used markers to paint some of it, rug hooking, needle felting. The difficult part was to put everything together, as I had started randomly. But it worked, one part is me and my heart and food and the rest is our house with flowers and a waterfall and rain. You have to imagine all!

It was made during the #coronavirusquarantine, so that is all!
