Cut off and ready for its close up!



Phoenix has flown... from the loom, at least.

I cut it off on Sunday night...






... and here it is, 60" wide x 30" high:




Next step will be getting it professionally photographed by Tim Barnwell.  I'll tuck the ends back and hide them with masking tape for that.  I'll do the final finishing work while at the Penland class, using the piece to demonstrate the steps I go through for that.

Here it is hanging on the wall of my studio, photo taken with iPhone:


Tim's photography will show the colors much better.

Now... in the few weeks that remain before the Penland concentration class I'll be working on the tapestry diary each day.  I'm also doing some sampling for methods I'll be showing at Penland.  Right now I have a weft-faced piece underway on the floor loom and I hope to finish it by the end of the week.  I'll post about that once it's off the loom.
