A very exciting opportunity!
I have been asked to make a piece for a couple who love my work. They have seen several pieces at Art on Boston, but wanted some thing bigger.
36" x 60" to be exact - which IS bigger than the 24" X 18" and 16" x 20" I have been doing lately.
I am very excited about this!!!
I've got a contract and a deposit and 6 weeks to work in. With a lot of freedom. I chose a color palette of red-oranges and blue-greens.
I'd like to play with a spoked-wheel or semi-circle motif; this couple ride a tandem bicycle, and there's a half-circle window in the room this piece will be displayed in.
So far I have cut and sewn several strip-sets. (photos are 3 of these)
Rather than cut into my actual fabric, I decided to take a photo and print a copy, then cut apart a paper version and see if I like the way it looks. (this saves me the anxiety of making a mistake)
Except the printer wasn't working very well, and I needed a new color ink cartridge. I ended up with a new printer! I have now printed a couple copies.
Okay now - back to the studio to play with my printed fabric. This is fun!
