New Work

Forsaken
Work in Paint, Thread, Wools & Silks

This morning the girls both headed out the door for their first day back at school. John exited right behind them and I headed into the studio. I feel really energized today which is surprising since the entire summer has not only been a blur but my creativity level has been way down. Perhaps I'll chalk it up to " being too nice outside to be inside." Yeah, that's what I'll say........

The piece above, Forsaken is brand spanking new and left this morning for the framers so they could work their magic. By the end of this week I am hoping to have a similar smaller piece to sell here on the blog. Anything that doesn't sell here will go to Etsy. I'm looking for a bigger market for my smaller pieces so my work can at least been seen by more people.

Melody, I find all of your work wonderful and amazing, but something about this piece is so gripping! I think it's my all time favorite.

What is your Etsy store address?

Nice piece Mel, are you moving towards more abstracted pieces? it's really interesting, I like the effect

Melody said...

Stock Investing Advice, thanks so much for your kind words and for dropping by and leaving a comment.

Jean, thanks. I am pretty excited about this new direction my work is taking. Hard to tell from the photo but the pieces of silk within the work just shimmer in the light. I'll post here on the blog when I get the Etsy store set up.

Ellen, yes I've been experimenting a bit in working in a much more abstract fashion. I am enjoying it so far.......we'll just have to wait and see
