There's a lot of hand work in it to get the shading I need. I still need to add some foreground and fence wires by hand. It's getting there though. The 'ugly' phase seems to have passed.
Also - I realize I haven't posted good, full images of my home studio. Here is one from the entry room...
It's the room of my dreams. It's still a wrok in progress. We have window casings and entry room baseboards to add still. But isn't the light terrific for a basement!?
The room is 24ft long by 13ft wide. At the back there behind the shelf wall at the right, there is a bathroom. It's awesome. The far back door leads to the furnace room and storage. The entry room on the left is the bottom of the stairs, and has chairs and a table for food breaks when I'm teaching. There are 3 big banquet tables for the classroom.
By request - here is a couple 'before' images of my space! (EW)
What else is in the works... Right now I'm planning another threadpainting class which is full already. We just have to juggle a time.
Oh ! I have a good friend who is heading toward a career in sexuality & health for women. She found images of colourful embroidered vulvas in little hoops on the net and wants to have a stitching night - women only. I'm giggling but fully embarrassed at the same time. I wasn't even sure if I should blog it (oh what a prude I am). But after I told her about all the rich batiks fabrics I have and the amazing fibres and embroidery threads, her excitement for this class was contagious. So - we have a date set. She wants to hang her finished pieces as ornaments on her tree! : ) I already told her she doesn't need to pay a class fee, but she had better bring wine! lol
What do you think about that!?
And... I have some interest in a silk ribbon class. I'll try to figure that one out too. I have loads and loads of ribbon. I'd love to get back doing that again. I would have a couple spaces available there (Saskatoon, SK Canada). It would be daytime and you can email if interested Monika@MySweetPrairie .ca
In progress - pretty much everything! Linking to WIP Wednesday at TN&TN.
