New Work

I've been hard at work in the studio all week and just this a.m. picked up the four new pieces I had sent up to my framer Diane last week. Even though it's my work and I imagine I should stay neurtral.........they are simply beautiful. This last batch of work has definitely been my best to date. This piece was inspired by a walk I took with a friend of mine last summer along the waterfront. Hard to tell from a jpeg but the ground cover is done in wool and silk with touches of shimmer here and there. I've also laid in this gorgeous green wool that is interlaced with specks of purples & pinks. The sky is painted in acrylic and the tree is completed totally in thread. The next three posts will include the other three pieces, one of which I may already have sold to an interior decorator.

I love it when artists are impressed by their own work. It's the reward for the blood, sweat, tears and joy of working, isn't it? Well done, Melody. They look great.

Thanks so much Andrea...I am so pleased with the work I've been doing this last little while...and yeah, it does feel good to be impressed by your own art.
