well my wee solo exhibition is getting closer and I fluctuate from feeling calm and organised (or atleast my version of it), to overwhelmed and fraudulent! Its definitely a good lesson in exercising those paltry self worth muscles I tend to sport!
Above is the front of the little flier/invitation I created which is off to the printers....alas..I realise now I've forgotten to include the opening times...ne'er mind...don't imagine many people will be hammering down the door at 9am, clamouring to get in!
So I'll share some sneaky peaks of what is going to join me on my adventures in paint and stitch! (some of which you have already seen on facebook, apologies!).... these butterfly wings are going to belong to an animal other than a butterfly..but I shall keep you guessing for now.
The desire to experiment with this dense hand embroidery alongside other mediums has somewhat dampened since beginning...but hours and hours of stitching the brittle canvas and shredded fingers would do that I guess!..I'm 12 hours into the wings in the photo above.....
You've seen the damask design I was working on here..which is now finished, yay! and this is another little peak at more embroidery on rock hard canvas ..can you feel my pain!? :)
I'll be including freehand machine pieces too....an assortment of animals and people. All this snow has had me dreaming of summer...
The one below won't be accompanying me..but I have a particular fondness to it..its called "the reluctant superhero's!"
Aka...me and my little one :)
Hope you all have a lovely easter holiday xx
