The exhibition draws nearer and I still have to complete my hanging preparations. I have now prepared two more – ‘Blue Moon’ and ‘Pinwheel’ below.
‘Blue Moon’ on the left was stitched onto some oatmeal coloured evenweave fabric, then mounted on art board before being put into a recycled frame. I don’t feel guilty about using a second-hand frame as it will not be offered for sale at the exhibition. This is one I intend to keep. I like the blue frame and I think it suits the piece very well.
‘Pinwheel’ on the right has been sewn onto an artist’s stretched ‘box’ canvas which has first been painted grey (kindly done for me by my husband), which seems to set it off well. I had intended to frame this one too but had been unable to find a frame of the correct size and I didn’t want to invest in having one specially made. Sewing it to the canvas was a bit of an experiment and not the easiest sewing job I have ever done but I am pleased with the result.
This leaves me with just ‘Aftermath’ and ‘Red Shift’ to complete – to remind yourself of what they look like click ‘here’.
I am also producing some greetings cards to sell in the gallery shop. The pictures are printed and awaiting mounting onto the cards. I have just a week to finish my preparations, before delivery to the gallery on 19th May, but I’m fairly confident now that I will be ready on time!
