Work in Progress

I'm about to go out for the day, driving an hour south to visit my sister. But before I left, I wanted to post about what I'm working on today. I had begun this textured landscape during AEDM in November, but felt that it needed something more. This morning I played around with fabrics and some wool roving, and now feel happy with this more complete picture, in the planning stages right now, but moving in a good direction.


Of course, the elements need to be sewn down and needle felted...


and maybe I will crop it and make it a vertical piece.
Time will tell, but I'll be working on this more when I get home later in the day!

Hope your day is going well.
Thanks for visiting!

I am liking this! Great details but still indistinct. Is that a word?

Have a good trip and visit with your sister. Drive carefully:)

With Spring just around the corner (wishful thinking) I love that you've given the fern green a chance, love your unusual talent!

Gorgeous. Really, really beautiful. The texture is fabulous.

Safe travels on those crazy roads...128/95?

Judy,
Hurray for art every day!
These are the very colors I've been drawn to lately. I think it's because they really bring spring to mind and on this frozen fog, foggy Groundhog's day I'm SOOO thinking Spring! Beautiful, beautiful work. I vote for horizontal...

I especially loved the simplicity of the first one...so elegant and in its quietness, said so much. I really felt drawn into it.
However I like also where you are going with it. I think vertical gives such a different aspect that it tells a vastly different story.
Clever you!
