The original idea had been to make one large painting, but when I considered the logistics of stitching it, I decided to go with multiple small canvases instead. Of course I did not have enough 10x10 stretcher frames! Waiting for the stretchers to come in provided a good thinking space while I worked on other things.
This weekend I got the stretchers - hooray! - and today I finished the first one:
|Spin, Drift, Pool, Settle|
mixed media on stitched canvas
10x10 inches each piece
And here is the beginning of the second "multiple" - 14 pieces which will also go on 10x10 stretchers:
While waiting for the 10x10 stretchers to arrive, I stitched yet another "multiple" piece. Each piece measures 16x78 inches, or 90x78 inches entire. I'm quite excited about it:
This one will need to sit in my peripherals for a bit before I stretch it... meanwhile I can work on the 10x10 multiples.
As for the "Snapshot" series: I have just got some more canvas prints, and am now waiting for the plywood I ordered to be ready so I can build stretcher frames for the continuation of that series, since they tend to be larger works.
I really enjoy having several things on the go at once, it seems to be a fairly efficient way of working for me.
