Well, the waiting is finally over. Sort of. The wait now is for this piece to dry enough to frame, hopefully by the end of this week. There are holiday shows to hang, and SOON, afterall.
Here's how the end game played out:
After the blue, a gray. This was one of those nervous moments when I wondered if I had made the right color choice.
But the final dark made it all happy again... whew!
I definitely like this boundary-breaking approach... I'll have to keep my eyes open for other images that would work well.
In the meantime, I'm moving forward on the new piece for the Underfoot series. Three colors are down... the three easiest ones to figure out. I think I have the next color sorted out in my head... but in the meantime I'm spending an awful long time carving with only a tiny pile of linoleum chips to show for it.
Seriously. Whose idea was it to carve all these little, tiny shapes? She should be reprimanded severely. Or at least denied dessert.
