i like to imagine them as souls on their final journey.
this is the first work i've done that incorporates hand stitching and i like the bit of texture it adds. the black-on-black is a challenge to photograph for sure, but it you look closely you can see that i layered a second piece of black fabric on top of the first and that, in addition to the hand stitching, i added two "x"s in black along one edge of the second layer.
A Migration of Souls. 22"x 28"x1.5". fabric on canvas, black perle cotton embroidery.
(in situ - note: that's one of my small stitched gouaches under the lamp)
new work in the studio is keeping me busy; i'm a happy girl these days!
