I have been working on several pieces recently, and have made a fair amount of progress. Here is the Red Herring that I put up on the blog a while ago in a paper rendition, with hand stitching. This time, the background is made of fabric, painted fabric, and is machine-stitched. This is mostly complete, and I am about to connect the fish to the background. This time the whole piece will be rendered in fabric, and painted.
I am about half way in to my Red Sky at the Morning project. Currently, I am working on the texture, combining wool roving, cheese cloth and paint. I have painted the background fabric and dyed portions to produce the red coloring.
