Wrapping up the summer

HB and I finally got the stretchers built and the canvas stretched on this enormous 6' x 9' painting. It is too big for my studio so the living room has become my temporary studio. I had some touch up work to do from the shipping. Also I had to finish some of the background. I am very close to being done with this. I am still leaning towards "Jello Shot" for this one. Let me know if you have any better ideas.
My first attempt at Fair Isle. This is a detail from a vest that I am working on.
Treasures from the DAV in Memphis.... It is my favorite thrift store. We used to have sculpture field trips there in college. I always find good (scary) stuff on Summer Ave.

Yes, the inside is just as creepy as the cover.

Stay tuned on the blog. I am heading to NYC for the Draw! New York class next week.

Love the vest. I am in love with the Fair Isle knitting.
