Its weaving Wednesday in my studio, but sadly I didn't get to do any actually weaving. I did get a lot done though! I was able to photograph a piece that was inspired by the amazing sunsets I have seen since moving to Charlotte. I was really excited to hop onto Photoshop and edit it. Unfortunately Photoshop decided to throw a full on temper tantrum. UUGGHHH! It took me around two and a half hours to get it to work, but I persevered. It is at these times that I really show my stubbornness and make the technology work for me. Photoshop -0
Me - 1 Take that technology!
After struggling with the computer for so long I was more then happy to get into the studio. I am working on a commission piece for the owner of the barn where I keep my horse, Dolly. Her birthday was in August and a group of people got together and asked me to create a weaving to commemorate her horse who passed recently. I am incorporating her horses tail hairs into the weaving. I am very excited to be creating this because the bond between a person and their horse is a thing of beauty, and I hope this piece honors the love that was shared between the two.
Below are some in process images of how I start a warp and then paint it. Its a fun process, I just wish I had a table instead of having to sit on the concrete balcony. One day I will have a gloriously large table to work on !
That's it for today. I not have to wait 24 hours for the warp to 'cute' before I wan unwrap it and rinse the exess dye out.
Off to find my inspiration images for the next few scarves!
