Lastnight, a family picked up the commissione of the little snowglobe for their small boy. Oh I WISH I could see his face when he opens it! I've never met him, but he's only 4 years old, and snowglobes are on the top of his list. How fun! : )
I just finished up another commission request in time for the holidays... I was asked for blonde grasses with the spring crocuses to be framed in white.
I'm having a tough time photographing my work in my new studio. The bright white spectrum of the lights seem to mess up up camera, and I am unable to get a good sampling of detail and depth with the threads because they are so overlit form all sides. Time to get a proper photo station for the art! I shall see what I can come up with.
The crocuses in the foreground are hand dyed silk ribbon with teenie French Knots of yellow. The matting is WHITE - not greyish bleah. Again, blame it on the lighting. It looks so very pretty and fresh in the white.
|Crocuses Return, 2015 (sold)|
I'll be delivering this one Friday after work.
I have two more threadpaintings 'just because' that are nearly done. Often I get some last minute calls from customers, so I like to have work on hand for them.
TWO MORE WEEKS!!
