A bunch of creative buddies did a little Kris Kindle Art Swap for Christmas this year. It was lots of fun to be involved. This was my painting for the talented Sophia Daly!
This is a painting for my good friend and moose lover, Karen Rohde Johansson. (I re-painted it a few times, she picked the orangey one!)
I never did get that scanner, oh well.

Robe à la Française | c. 1770
The gown, petticoat and stomacher are decorated with the same fabric three-dimensionally sewn up and the fry fringes. This elegant Rococo-style dress has both subtlety and floridness, and was used for formal dress. The textile was made by elaborately combining satin with “canelé” and other fabric, and precisely weaving a small rose-garland pattern on the white area in the stripes. The combinations of stripes and flowers in textiles were popular in this period, and this textile shows tendency for lightness of fashion that would become remarkable in the late 18th century.
