Abstract Expressionist Joan Mitchell brought swirling tornadoes of color into her art, and BLUE APATITE was one of her favorites. She loved how this rich teal blue could energize her paintings with the color of electricity, twirling this way and that in dynamized ribbons, or pooling into watery patches of translucent color.
Though her densely patterned canvases came about through experiment and intuition, there was always a lingering trace of landscape at the back of her mind, and the rich, naturalistic blues of her paintings suggest oceanic waves, or the vibrancy of a summer garden in full bloom.

At a lighter weight of 3.5 ounces this 100% linen is woven with finer threads to give it a smoother appearance. Referred to as lightweight or handkerchief linen, this fine, but surprisingly sturdy linen brings new meaning to the term "sheer elegance".

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Love this linen but am sorry I chose this pattern. New Look 6601 is better suited to cotton, I think. The rich color of this linen is beautiful and even though this is IL020--the lightweight--it is plenty opaque. I used Gütermann color 635 thread for a perfect match.
