So, the design work (and for me it's indeed work!) continues as I try to develop a tapestry based on the fiddleheads and ferns. Today I finally went over the edge and cut all three paintings I've been working on apart. I've manipulated the real things and also the digital versions for weeks now and I need to do something to shake myself up--try to get out of this mudhole I've gotten myself into.
Maybe this will all become a large floorcloth, glued together and sealed...who knows at this point.
But I decided to see what I could do from this photo by putting it into Photoshop and doing some fiddlin' (pun intended?!)
So here's some stuff happening and it's causing some shifts in my thinking--may not yet be productive but at least I'm moving away toward something else...away from the cycle of work and re-work on the three paintings.
