|the latest painting by J. Frost. VERY cool.|
I spent the afternoon going through nearly a hundred of my best photos, sketching some out and trying to make a short list of what to sew next. There are number of exhibits I would like to have things ready for. Nothing got farther than the paper and pencil, however, I did come across a photo I had forgotten all about! It was late autumn / early winter, and we put on our 'patio lights'. I took many photos. Looking at them really sparked something creative in me, so this is what I made as the sun went down. (Thus the dim lighting.)
It's thread painting on black, which I really enjoyed. Here's how I work.
I purposefull did not try to copy the photo exactly. I did do the bulbs by the original photo, but I made a different line up & angle, including some dark bulbs. Then I just doodle-quilted the background in. Fun!

We sat in the sun, had a big turkey dinner and have simply been having such a nice quiet time together. See you tomorrow for Tips on Tuesdays. Any Suggestions?
