A Series of Unexpected Still Lifes painted on Fabric

In my career as a textile designer, I have always collected scraps of fabrics that I love.
It made sense to combine my two passions, painting and textiles, but there were positives and negatives -
The positive was how the texture of the fabric underneath shows through the oil paint. The negative- I couldn't "correct" the painting once the oil paint was down on the surface!
