Still working on the flowers gothic arch. It now has birds on it. I have a picture of my great grandmother that I think will go in the center.
I have a new gothic arch started. The background is torn papers coated with a wash of gel medium to get it all stuck down. I put a bird down and then decided that a couple of the background papers where just too bright so I smeared gesso over it all. Then the bird disappeared. I liked him well enough to cut out a second copy and pasted it down. They over lap a bit but you can’t see it in this photo. The balloons are from a painting (used on the cover of the SAM bulletin.) I’m not sure what the key tags are going to be.
I got the backgrounds for the house book pasted down. I suspect that once the pieces are finished no-one will see them.
I’m also knitting a mohair scarf — a mid-not-very-red purple in a simple eyelet pattern. It’s to go with my grey coat. I try to knit in the evening but I’m getting so short sighted that I need a lot of light to see the stitches and sometimes I’d rather not have the bright reading light on while we’re watching television.
