|Detail from Eclipse, 2014. |
Hand embroidery, pearl cotton & watercolor.
Here is Eclipse, a piece I made from the same color family. In fact, I painted the background watercolor on the same day; I was in a deep, juicy, saturated color mood and stuck to red, yellow and crimson paints.
This piece was made for my badass Pops. It was his birthday on Sunday. Oh Pops, you are a wild man.

I've made several honeycomb pieces. One of my favorite things to do with embroidery is to layer stitches. The honeycomb pieces are already layered.
|WIP. Made with pearl cotton, size 5.|
String Box was an experiment with longer stitched lines. I've tried to bring a layer of the longer lines to the honeycombs.
|What I made the fabulous Kinsellas for Xmas.|
Off to NYC tomorrow for a quick visit to the fabulous Kinsella family and to attend the opening of the groundbreaking Queer Threads exhibition at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. Aubrey Longley-Cook's RuStitch animation, for which I stitched a frame, will be featured in the show.
|I'm ready to tackle the gray boxes.|
When I get back to Durham, I want to tackle some new work on my gray boxes, which are the opposite of the juicy, saturated colors of my last two pieces.
