Im working on this right now . I need to break away from my other two , very time consuming works due to the stress on my crippled shoulders . I consider this a quick break away piece , until my shoulders feel better . Im also making a shelf made from nasty old cigarette boxes and paper mache .
Ive always worked " assembly line style ". Most of the time , I am working two or more pieces at once , just switching back and forth . It takes a certain amount of discipline for me to work on and complete something without switching ! I have proved to myself , that I can do it , once in a while . Sometimes there will be a couple of months or even years before something is truly finished . Ive added some gold metallic paint to this one , and I will be adding beads , of course .
I plan on really loading up on the beads . This is hard to see right now in a photo . It is an experiment in color , and texture . This piece begs you to touch it and run your fingers across . Very tactile !
..... put my needle down for a while . I'm just having fun with my camera . Of course , in the back of my brain , I'm thinking , I wish I had the energy to make them into photos with stitching on top . I think it can be printed on fabric . Ill have to do some research on that .
In order to make the cutting easier , I used some red paint around the edges . I also did the same thing on the backside . I will be cutting this out and attach it to either a canvas , or a bigger hoop and will continue working on the design .
