We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Piece 1 - the process continues

As I stated in my first post for this year on Jan. 5, my theme for 2013 is Up Close An Personal.  And I found out that these are called MACRO photos. I also posted the first step in my process on this first piece.

Now, I have step 2 completed.  I cut away and reversed appliqued several areas to get the effect I wanted.  The next step is to do some embroidery and then the binding to complete the piece.

I've chosen to do it kind of like a challenge in a GAMES magazine I used to get.  Very up close views of common things and you had to guess what they were.  Some were easy - others were more difficult. So when each piece is finished, I'll post it and then the next day post my photograph that is was taken from. Don't know if you all will enjoy the "game" or not...but it keeps me from getting bored!!

Piece 1 - Step 2
