This is quite a beauty, but a medium crepe square which are not as easy to wear for most women so it has been biding its time. And its time came; it was such a pleasure to imagine it as worn on my antique form.
A small square in flat crepe, could be a painting if stretched on stretchers and then I could ask for more money than the $25 which a small square could sell for, but it is quite lovely worn.
Always so many questions as to what to do with the art after it is made...so much easier to just make it!
Spring colors on this wonderful jacquard. I tried to order more jacquard blanks which are already hemmed, but my California company had received 3000 jacquards which had been so poorly sewn that they wouldn't sell them to me. It is suspected that soon that market will dry up....who wants to hem silk scarves for very little pay? I can relate.
Another beauty I have hung on to from last fall, but it is time to get another batch of my work out for sale. Taking the photos is a first step, now names are needed, and posting on etsy. At least they don't need frames. I'll also be stocking my galleries and taking a small collection to Arizona when we go in a week. Scarves are easier to ship to galleries and to take for show than the paintings.
I did spend several hours making up another large canvas--40x50. The final coat of gesso went on today. Amazing what time it takes on some of the unseen steps.
Are you all making art these days of March with greater light in the skies?
