Felt Paintings

I’ve been doing a lot of felt paintings recently in preparation for a little craft fair at our local library. I’ve had 4 washboards in my closet for about a year now, so I decided it was time to dig them out and actually use them to hold some felt paintings.

My favorite washboard out of this batch is this little toadstool panel.

I found a felt painting that I started a long time ago (it must have been a really long time ago because I have no memory of ever doing it) and never finished. I decided to finish it for the show – its probably the biggest painting I’ve done yet, at 11 x 14″.

The Latest Felt Paintings

I made 3 felt paintings over the holidays. One is of a Baltimore Oriole, one is of a Painted Turtle, and one is landscape.

I started making the paintings to a standard size (8×10 in.) for the first time, so they can easily be mounted on a canvas.
Here is the Oriole piece after wet felting.
