About Me

My photo
Albuquerque, NM, United States
I have been weaving Contemporay Fine Art Tapestries for over 20 years, raising a family in the lovely Southwest. I want to show process which usually gets a back seat to product and share the trials and tribulations as well as the joy and excitement of the creation of art out of a bunch of strings. How remarkable!

After Weems the commission is finished

I finished! And they loved it and picked it up. I haven't seen it in situ yet and will take pictures when I do.
Here are some in progress picture. Before I sew in all the ends and after, so my pieces are all reversible and easy to clean. And some finished pictures too!
It was interesting that they wanted a dawn sky and this was at the same time as the thread in the Tapestry on line group about dawn versus sunset. I also am not a dawn person , love those conveniently timed sunsets though. After trying unsuccessfully to capture a dawn sky, ( it's hard to aim the camera when you are asleep) the clients sent their own pictures which was the basis for the sky, and a landscape view from the deck attached to the room the piece will go in was the inspiration for the landscape. The whole circle element is only 9 inches in diameter so the scale was small, and the whole piece is 54" x 46".
