Second Take

My reduction print turned into a tapestry.    I stuggled with keeping the warp vertical.  I think I have the warp too close together for the yarn I am using, and have started another, simpler design in an effort to improve my technique. 

I am calling this piece “Medusa with a Migraine”.  She looks as though she could bite someone’s head off.  I think she just experienced her first hot flash.  I did not set out to create Medusa, she just appeared as I wove.  Don’t look into her eyes….

Medusa-with-a-Migraine

No photoshop touch up, but you did notice the mat hiding the edges, didn’t you?  There are all kinds of ways to cover up mistakes.

    NICE! Have you seen the tapestry portraits of Barbara Burns? She has an artist page on the ATA website: http://americantapestryalliance.org
    Just go to the artist pages link at the left side bar and all are listed alphabetically.
