My friend, Kathleen Probst, also wrote an article, too. Her work is pictured on the third square from the top in the photo above.
In my article, I talk about the trial and error process I went through to figure out how to paint over stitching using Personal Logographs #1-4 as test pieces. The video shows the technique of painting over the machine stitching. As a continuation, you can see the actual steps I used to create the large piece, Personal Logograph #5, that I posted on my blog previously (this part is not in the article).
Here is a look at Personal Logograph #6, which was on display during Textiles x Two last year.
