I have decided that I think I like this piece better without the hoops...what do you think?
Click here to see with hoops.
I am really wanting to do a piece with multiple hoops but this one is just not working for me, it looks forced....and I have a feeling the next 2 I have in mind will not either.
It is all about coming up with the right fiber, image, and energy.
So hopefully it will come to me...I know my mom is sending me some new larger linens so perhaps I will be inspired by one.
I finished another smaller piece that I have yet to photograph. And though it looks just like all my other text works its inspiration was more on a global scale...which is a first for me. I have to say it was exciting and felt great to make a little piece that was outside of my own head...I might be inspired to make more....but more on that later.
I then noticed the beauty of the industrial area of where my studio is ...lots of water towers, the elevated train, the dirty gowanus... and thought how beautiful an embroidery of it would be a - sweet pastel embroidery of a gritty dirty part of Brooklyn...hmmm.
I can tell my wheels are turning which makes me even more excited to check out Chelsea and see some work. I hope to have inspiration to share tomorrow.
