|Original 'Space Dancers'|
This piece was my first combination with the dancers and astronomy photos. That worked somewhat but I'd like to simplify the composition by reducing the elements and not have as many textures and colors going at once. One of my other pieces that sold almost immediately has that simpler color palette.
|Infinity & beyond|
The problem with this piece was the funny size. This was 20" wide and 10" high and was a pain to frame. I'm going to try this piece with a more square finished size and we'll see how that goes.
And finally, the piece that got lost in transit while I had 2 studios, one public and one at home.
I really like the central figure with the marbled fabric streamers swirling around the globe, the dancer and then off into space. I was so sad about losing this piece that it's been hard to do another one but it's definitely on my list for this year's work.
Things I want to combine in these new pieces: glow in the dark paint, some new celestial fabrics I just ordered this morning, and using paper to work out the compositions before doing the textile pieces. I'm excited about the ideas I'm getting as well as finally having the studio set up so I can work easily. I got in some studio time every day this week which is also a good thing.
I'll be posting as I make progress on these and I look forward to sharing them with you all.
