Losing Touch

My newest piece in the Loss Series is titled "Losing Touch".  This series is conveying my thoughts on memories of a loss, whether physical or emotional.

There are four elements to this work, each one getting a little more fragile.

Hanging it presented some challenges, although it was a piece of cake compared to this piece

The back is my usual heavily stitched and shrunk work, with the next layer consisting of netting with felted wool.

The third layer is organza with painted images, and the last, outermost layer is netting with some hand stitching

It's barely there, holding on

We started hanging it before the sun came up

And had about 15 minutes before it became too bright

now it's done, disassembled

I'm in awe of this piece of art. Beautifully, creatively made. I hope to see it in person someday.

It looks so simple but it isn't of course.
