Another art piece, entitled “Whispering Hope”
This one was kind of scary because I did all of the inlay/overlay work successfully, then took a deep breath and stitched gray lines over all of it in the hope it would look like rain. It does, but since I’m doing a type of art that (as far as I know) no one’s ever done before, I’m never sure if the completed piece will match my vision. I love gray and drizzly days and I can almost smell the rain when I look at this piece.
I’m flying to an event in Idaho this weekend so I’m stretching my completed art pieces over stretcher bars. I’ll put everything I want to take into my suitcase and then if there’s space left I get to take some extra clothes; if not, look for me wearing the same thing all weekend. Once I return I’ll have everything framed nicely, which will cover up any unevenness around the edges.
