daybreak

Summer.....it's always so full of activity! And in between all that activity I finally managed to finish a small artwork, and finally post to the old blog...

Daybreak is a small (12"x12") study of the George Washington Bridge in pinks, on a background of greens. The pinks are hand stitches in a variety of cotton embroidery threads. The greens are re-purposed plastic shopping bags layered and machine stitched with a collage of skyscrapers. Daybreak is on stretched canvas with my usual thickly painted edges.

Happy lazy summer days to all!

It's fabulous! I love the energy in those long hand stitches. Good for you for getting something finished in the summer (I've started a few things, but not near finished yet!)
