Here we go!

 So, these are some of the projects I have been working on lately.  They are very large sized thread painting portraits of two of my favorite dogs.  It's hard to say favorite, as they all are favorites in some way.  These two were extra special in a way, however.

These were my first attempts at large pieces.  I have learned from a local thread panting teacher, Robin at http://www.threadworkbyrobin.com/
to make a pattern so I can increase the size of the photo I am working with.  It seems to work very well.  I have also learned from Jennifer day at http://www.jdaydesign.com/ that a very good stabilizer is 15 oz canvas.  So these pieces are quite heavy.  It's an arm workout!

My smaller portraits were very popular during the holidays.  I am hoping that folks can look at these larger pieces as real art they wish to invest in.

I am also hoping that my new website will be up and running very soon.

Exciting things!!!!

Until next time!
