Title: Southern Comfort
Dee Stewart Merrell
Janis Joplin and blues; nothing else says blues like Janis and her raspy voice and gutsy lyrics. She is such an icon to the world of music and blues.
I wanted to make this piece as vivid, raw and honest as Janis and her vocals. The image was transferred to fabric using Citrasol and filled in with fiber inks. Raw-edged fabric strips were glued in place then stitched/quilted. It is mounted on an 11 x 14" canvas frame.
