And on that front, I've made progress with the miniatures:
1. "Pristine" is finished and matted:
2. And "Vespers II" is coming along. I say that because...I finished it once, and had second thoughts:
As my mother would have said, there was just too much of a muchness in that pink sky! So...
A bit of oil paint stick...et voila! (The mat in the above photo is just perching on the piece; I have to wait another day or so for it to dry so I can heat set it and apply the matt properly.)
3. Two more are prepped -- that is, their backgrounds are in place. First, a reprise of "Prairie Autumn" (the one I sold) with some slightly different fabric...
And then a new one, which will be called "Can You Hear Me Now?" ;-)
Aside from the miniatures I went back to "Waiting for the Train" and added a few features yesterday.
You can tell by my attempt at graffiti that I never would have made it in the big leagues! ;-)
Next up: the quilting, followed by the hand embroidery. Dharma has charged my order to my credit card, which means -- I hope -- that they've shipped it, so I may just have the silk ribbon in time to dye it and stitch in those grasses and bull rushes and get it finished for the show. Fingers crossed!
Linking this up with Nina Marie's "Off the Wall" Friday...and then I'm off to the studio. Have a great weekend!
