GreenMan still on pause…..

With 2/3 completed I’ve had to put GreenMan is on ‘pause’ so I could get a piece submitted for the AAFG show at the Power Center on the University of Michigan campus.  It was not selected – darn.  Any time you submit something for a show that features multiple artists (over 24 with this one!) the committee has to look at balancing the variety of techniques used, over all impact in a large space and balance of the exhibit.  I’ll submit it for our next show in March which is a smaller gallery setting.

Heron completed

‘Heron’ is wet felted.  The image is carded wool fibers on silk chiffon fabric which is backed with 2 layers of carded merion wool fibers.  Finished demensions 28″ x 34″

Below you can see the difference 40%-45% shrinkage makes.  Staring dimensions approx 43″ x 54″
