4th in a series
I have put the basics together on this piece and started doing the hand stitching. The large circle started out very white and it needed to be toned down with a little paint. I'm incorporating a little more of the yellow, and I am stitching a thin vertical yellow line thru each one to tie them together a little more. I will have 6 of these when I'm done, and I'm starting to think about how to put them together. I could mat and frame them each seperately which will allow you to focus on the individual pieces, or I could put all 6 together. My friend Paula suggested I use a mesh on the background so you appear to be looking thru it, but I'm concerned about stabilizing this. My other thought is mounting each one seperately on a 1" black background and then mounting the whole thing on burlap. Any ideas from the peanut gallery?
