The last couple of weeks have been filled, just not with much art. I worked on a fiber piece (I don’t like the terms that are generally associated with this technique, wonder if I can coin a new phrase….) of a figure sitting in a chair. I learned that you can excise a portion you do not like and patch it. I learned that you do not wash out the stabilizer if you intend to stitch on it more. It spreads. My figure’s arm grew to twice the size it originally was. I was sad, I was liking that piece. I guess this is to be expected if you are teaching yourself a new process.
There is something that jumps out at me when you google (when will Webster’s declare google a noun and verb?) thread painting. It is that you should not try to copy a Vermeer in thread. It just doesn’t work.
But, we try all things…
I tried architecture in thread.
