"Shining Jewel" is now available in Galleribba. This hand dyed 10" x 7" piece began with shrinking for texture. The hand painted sun was appliqued on. Oil sticks add highlights throughout. Metallic yarn was hand couched, along a multitude of french knots and other hand embroidered additions.
And from my somewhat neglected garden, an abundance of strawberries!
Grapes are coming along, but may not make it to my table with uneven ripening due to cooler temperatures (half rot before the rest ripen), and from being eaten by wildlife (who munch these green concords at almost any stage). How they can eat them unripe I do not know...very sour!
