I've sent you to see the art of Gene Black before. In fact one of his paintings was the inspiration for the very popular Transcend fabric palette last fall. He is a fearless artist and will try anything and use all kinds of materials. He's definitely not afraid to cut into any of his fabrics and that's what he did with some shibori fabrics that he got from me.
This photo is only a sneak peak but look at how he used the shibori patterning for the tulip blossoms.
