Wall hanging finished!

“Sea Marries Sky” is what I titled this wall hanging (6’x 3’9″). There is a depth and calm to the ocean yet a lot of movement as well. I included suggestions of animal life and fish movement where the sea merges with the sky.

I am delivering this tapestry today and hopefully my client will be as pleased with it as I am. If not, I will make her a new one and keep this one, or sell it to another party.

    I think it looks really special. I had never seen this medium used for art before.
    It works excellent!

      Thanks Elinor! I am finding this to be a really fun medium for art. I like “painting” with fiber! The fibers are easier to manipulate than paint and I can change them if I don’t like how it looks. In fact, I completely changed this tapestry after looking at my preliminary work for a week, and made it completely different just by removing the fibers and starting over.

      I recently set my workshop wall up with all the colors I can get from The Woolery in their Ashland Bay merino top fiber colors. I’ll have to do a little blog about my wall palette soon!

        It’s super creative, and looks so soft!
        Just like you say – it’s like “painting with fiber”. Very cool 🙂

    It’s beautiful, Michelle. I can’t imagine anyone not liking it!

    Thanks Linda! I am loving making art with wool. Not only is it beautiful but it just feels so wonderful in the hands to work with. There is something about it . . . !!

    Have you blogged the client’s reaction anywhere? That was satisfying 🙂
