WIP ~ Fiber Sculpture ~ Day Ten

Kind of an overcast day today.  And I wasn't called in for jury duty.  Woohoo!!  So I was able to get some extreme photos of the sculpture in progress.  First, canvas one so far...still more to do on it...













These are very close photos showing some of the details in the piece.  Still have more items to add...so there will be more photos of canvas number one soon.

Canvas number two is still in the back of the studio and I couldn't get a good shot of the whole piece.  But I got some good closeups of the handmade paper that will go under the tubes.  When the tubes go on, all you will see is a little of this.  Right now it looks extreme.  Here ya go...









On the floor is the handmade paper that I made that will go on the top of this one.  The gold flecks you see are not really golden...they are pieces of papaya leaves and the flash made them appear golden.  Now that I have totally confused you.  Or at least sparked your interest.  More to follow.

Have a blessed and magical day!!
Hugging you,
SueAnn

Your work always sparks my interest. I did think that was golden. Papaya leaves are even more intriguing.
