Being ill has lead to a silver lining of having a lot of down time that I can fill with art. It doesn't take a huge amount of physical energy to sketch or paint watercolors. Creating art has been an excellent distraction from the issues I am having, while also allowing me to get closer to ticking off a bucket list item of being a "real" artist.
OK, enough of being a downer. On to more art! The art trading site I am a part of has had a few fibers based swaps as of late. I was going to participate in a fiber landscape swap, however I was unable to finish the work in time to participate. It was a little bit of a bummer but I really enjoyed getting back to embroidering. I decided to do the theme of 4 seasons with trees, I just never finished summer. For reference, these are approximately 2.5"x3.5".
|Spring Tree - the "foliage" is entirely french knots|
|Fall tree with metallic thread|
|Summer, the one I didn't finish|
I am hoping to finish "Summer" at some point and trade all of them for fabric cards. No idea when that will be, though.
Alright, off to work on art!
