Stillness

















SOLD Work In Acrylic Paint & Thread

Image Size 3"x3" Double Matted & Framed Under Glass 6"x6"
$100.00 plus $12.00 S&H

This piece is finally back from the framer. As always, all art looks better live and in person especially textile art as a jpeg can't capture the texture and three dimensionality of the artwork.

I'm really pleased with how this piece turned out. The reds show brilliantly against the black bark of the maple tree and the creamy white of the birch.

I'm currently working on a fairly large piece for the "Carriage House Gallery" show. It is a landscape with plenty of trees in the foreground as well as the background surrounded by a field of lavendar. It is just in the beginning stages but I'm working on it fairly steadily now so I'm hoping to be done in a couple weeks.

I saw the optomitrist this morning for an eye test and new glasses. I chose a pair I really liked which the guy who was helping me called "edgey"....yeah, that's me....edgey. No, wish it were but can't say that is the word that best describes me.

Still snowing here.........................

Hi Melody!

This piece is great! So interesting how you combined paint with thread for such a great effect. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Be Blessed! (stay warm, too!)
