final knot tied...
Here are the final images of my newest figurative embroidery, laying. I showed it last week but tweaked just a few things and have better images now.
I am really happy with how it turned out, I particularly like how the colors of my embroidery work with the colors of the existing embroidery-
and how the shape of the linen mimics the shape of the figure.
The details became important to me- the inclusion of the lamp.
I feel like this inclusion builds more of a space around the figure.
I also carefully recreated my very unique wedding ring....you cannot really see it but the detail meant a lot to me.
I still may add in a little paint but am not sure that it needs it so....I will just sit and watch it for awhile and see what it communicates to me.
I also tried this suggestion from Chrisy ...a hoop on the hands and not the face. What do you think?
I think it might be the perfect answer. Or does it look awkward? I appreciate all your feedback.
Thanks to all of you who sent messages to brighten my day yesterday...I actually got some great news that really did brighten my day. I will share in a few weeks.
And a sweet thanks to lovely things, craft gossip, and juliana.
And please stop by my shop a few new pieces have been added.
