We are having a small show during the month of March at the the Lakeshore Sewing Center in Wyoming. The theme is Artists at Play. It has been a good experience to prepare for a formal gallery show or other type show as we have had to develop an artist's statement and work within a specific size-18x18. With that being said-you have to know there is some strange happening with my piece:).
I wanted to mount mine on a canvas. (Why do I try all these new things when there is some risk involved with the outcome? Gotta love a challenge!) So I painted my canvas before vacation. And of course, going on vacation I thought it would be dry by the time I got back. Plenty of time. It wasn't dry on Friday night-and it was due on Mon. What's a girl to do? I got out the hair dryer! Voila-it's dry. I don't know it that I should have done that. I used oil paints on the canvas because I wanted the texture but should have factored in a long dry time in the winter.
Missing the Mark
Lots of fun things to play with but just couldn't make it work- thus missing the mark. Had fun though. That sometimes happens,doesn't it? I had plenty of time to do this but should have stuck with a method I was more comfortable with for this piece. Ah-the joy of learning!
Sorry about the pictures. It is snowing so hard here and I don't feeling like dragging out my lights. Off to try again.
Happy Sewing, my friends!
