Happy to be Back

Since my last posting of January 28, my site has been completely rebuilt. My goal with this remodel was to create a professional appearance and a user friendly environment to navigate. I hope that you take the time to peruse the entire site and share your thoughts with me either as a comment below or as a more private email (just click on the Contact button in the top right corner or the envelope symbol to the right). I’m happy to be back here sharing what I’ve been up to.

I finished the work on Going in Circles, the piece I shared with you on January 28. Because this style of work is such a stretch for me, the decisions took a long time.

I liked the overall look of the piece but I wanted another layer of design that probably wouldn’t be noticed until the viewer stepped closer. Here are a few detail images to point out those design elements. Click on an image for a larger view.

I followed a quilting line on the top left corner with a simple blanket stitch.

And again on the lower right side I followed a quilting line with the blanket stitch.

Little x’s in the same orange color as the rectangle were added to the spiral here and simple straight stitches were added to the bottom left corner.

More x’s on the top right corner.

This will be a nice companion piece to Hand of the Artist.

      Thanks Christy. I plan to be posting twice a week again — assuming I get some creative work done!
