WIP ~ Fiber Sculpture ~ Day Seven

Well it has been a long week and a hot one at that.  Which I am thrilled about, by the way.  I love love love the summer.  Sunshine and blue blue skies...temperatures in the high 80's...wonderful!!

Another sheet of handmade paper drying in the sun!!





And now the piece as it stands now...both tubes are covered; including the ends.  I love the color combinations.  I am making the next series of tubes now!  The handmade paper goes on next.  Just so you know.



I left this one full sized so you could see how it sits in my studio.  Big huh?!!!













My 14 year old granddaughter, Georgia Rose, is coming to help me so I can get all the tubes sewed on.  I need someone to stand in the back of the canvas and help me push the needle back through.  She is so excited that she will be my art assistant.

Canvas number two is assembled and ready to go!  So it is just a matter of attaching the handmade paper and the tubes and some finishing stuff.  More pictures to follow!  I will include my assistant of course!

Have a magical and blessed weekend!
Hugging you
SueAnn

I just can't comprehend the gigantic scale of this project... and the matching panel yet to be constructed. How do you stay excited about a piece when it is an endless project?

Again, I bow to you, my queen.

Your finished piece is going to be gorgeous!

Amazing work!! Love the angled shots from the side. Are these commissioned pieces? Or how do you sell them? Or do you sell them? Perhaps you keep them for yourself!

Highs in the high 80's? I could handle that. It's probably not humid either. It's supposed to be near 100 here this weekend. YUK! Your tapestry is looking amazing. And yes, it is huge! LOVE the colors!

Making your own paper and incorporating cloth into your canvas is so eye catching. I am looking forward to seeing your next step and your granddaughter.
