She's cute, no? :)
When I first embarked on this series - I knew I wanted to do something small, something representational, and something that would improve my technical abilities as an artist.
I'm only three in and I'm already seeing the benefits of working in a series! Yes, Whitewashed is a series as well, but I work on those only when I'm passionately moved to say something - so it isn't the same as this; where week after week, I use the same process, producing similar work, and just actively work at trying to get better at it.
As an example, I'm really pleased with the stitching around those little flowers - and it's making me want to do more hand work (words that were anathema to me as recently as a few months ago!); and so, for my next bird piece, I'm going to actively seek out something that will require more of it. You know how I know that? I've been watching You Tube videos on hand stitching! lol
But that piece will be in January, 'cuz next week I may have to do something Christmas themed. Hmmmmm.
See you Monday, have a great weekend!
