Two down



This is the second one finished! The same black cotton fabric with the the gelatin prints, but this one has stamps, stencils, and hand painting. The same paints used for the other one plus some oil pastels and fabric paints. Commercial print piping and border. The bamboo on the sides really doesn't look that light in real life. It's stenciled in layers of 4 different colors and then hand detailed with an olive Lumiere metallic which is catching the light. The contrast in the picture is definitely starker than the contrast when it's hanging on the wall. The Chinese characters mean "Love" and "Energy" according to the stencil.

This looks great!

I agree. I'm sure you'd rather have gotten some sleep the other night, but to have this come about because of insomnia is pretty darn cool!

And one was sold sight unseen before I ever finished it! I love when that happens.
