This week I’ve jumped back into my art with gusto. I’m tired of being on hold. I need to be creative!! With a 4-day weekend and plans to pack and move postponed (again!) it was time to make up for lost time.
This past week has been devoted to making a piece titled “Puppy Love”. I’ve done smaller versions of this piece in the past for small art auction donation pieces, but this one is big and bold.
It started with a selfie taken by my step-daughter, Maya with our little dachshund, Coco. While previous versions were printed on fabric and thread-painted, this one is raw-edge fused appliqué and 30″ x 40″.
A couple of marathon work days, and the piece was nearly completed. Selecting the background fabric had me stalled for day as I just couldn’t decide. I took audition photos with my phone and toggled back and forth between the shots until I was able to make a decision.
Now, it’s on to the stitching. I’m going to try something new and will share that with you next week. Check back in next week.
