But - I am SUPER HAPPY. This is done. It has so many colours in it and it's all done free machine on straight stitch. There's no zigzag used. That's all manually manipulated. It's a lot of threadwork.

This will be heading to Alberta - an old friend from highschool has purchased it. I haven't seen her in years but she's been following my art on FB. We used to sit in art class together waaaay back in the early '80's. I think I have a sketch of her and a couple friends still from those days when we had to do some continuous line drawing samples. (Waving - Hello Mrs. Deptuch!)
Here is a detailed part of the threadpainting cropped square.
And here is the same portion in black and white. VERY interesting!
A friend of mine is having her art in the paper for Weyburn ArtWalk & Join the Thread. She had to see which have the most variation in value so that they are still appealing if printed in black and white. That makes me want to view all my work in black and white to ensure it's not blaaaaah. Smart.
Okeedokee. Off to frame & box it up. I'm so excited for her to get this! It's awesome - I've been shipping a lot of work to Alberta lately.
linking to TN&TN and yes - I will be stepping away from that if anyone is interested in taking over that blog. : )
Have a good day!
