What a great summer project, I am pretty happy with this one. This is one of the larger pieces I have done, 13 in. x 9 in. I will be entering this in a juried show at the end of this month. I will update on how I do.
I love the feel of Ndebele chain. I won’t be doing it for a while after making 26 inches of it with size 11/0 seed beads… in white. She is kinda cute tho. She needs a name, ideas welcomed.
I completed the main beading late last night, added some tassels tonight. I will trim, add backing and start the edging tomorrow. For those asking about the size, it is a 5 inch circle.
Three new bead art pieces for my next show!
Au; The Northern Element
This is a multimedia invitational art exhibit . Curated by Elizabeth Eero-Irving.
First Friday at the 31st Annual 64th Parallel Exibition
The guest juror this year was Jovencio de la Paz. He gave a very interesting lecture Monday night, after a long day in the Bear Gallery. Fairbanks area artist submitted over 200 entries. I think we wowed him Fairbanks! I don’t know how he narrowed it down to 64 pieces for the show. I am surprised and honored to have two of my Bead Art pieces chosen for the show.
Here are some of the accepted art works from the show. We had a fun evening seeing great friends, other artists and supporters of the arts! Thank you Fairbanks Arts Association .
No beading yesterday, boo. Today I spent a few hours working on this piece. I like where this is going. I am thinking it wants me to change the head. I have penciled in a more rounded head and ears. We shall see how it feels as I go along.
