Here's a little peek at some new work...
These are part of a new series that I have recently begun,
tentatively titled "Rough Patches".
I am approaching this series a little bit differently then I usually do. Generally, I work a group of pieces, one piece after the other, until I have said whatever it is I want to say, then I go start something completely different.
This time, I have decided to create a sub-series of works within a larger series. Each sub-series will
contain 9 individual works, (approximately 7.5" x7.5").
Once the 9 are completed I will post them. Then I will begin on the next sub-series of 9 works.
My goal is to complete 4 sub-series in this "Rough Patch" series for a total of 36 works.
I'll be back to share more as soon as I finish the first sub-series!
In other news, I have been getting a lot of questions about my hand-stitched beads and requests for more, as all have sold. Unfortunately, due to on-going hand pain, I have taken a huge step away from hand-sewing, (it was suppose to be a complete and clean break, but I couldn't resist putting a few hand stitches into the works above).
In light of this, have decided to put together an illustrated pdf tutorial on the process, along with lots of suggestions for various variations. However, this will require a bit of time on my part, and it isn't top priority right now, but I do hope to get around to it before winter is over. ) If not, then hopefully spring!) Will definitely let you all know when it is done.
