Today I added earth pigment from the clay I'd dug up near the studio yesterday. I worked on this painting for a couple of hours and then decided it was done for now. I'll look at it again when I get home to see what more, if anything, I need to do to it before I consider it a potential tapestry design. If I decide to weave it, then the challenge comes of interpreting as I weave. And that's usually a several month-long process. Since I don't dye my own yarns, I have the task of selecting the colors to blend into weft bundles to best create the effects I want, based on how I'm working from the painted design.
