Here is the completed "September" tapestry. It is 19x19 inches, so is not large. It is blocked, slits sewn, etc., but is not yet mounted, as nobody in town carries 19" stretchers, so my husband will have to make me some. For those who didn't see (or can't remember) the maquette, it came from 4 small oil paintings that I pieced together in the computer. Here it is again:
As you can see, it did not translate directly, but has some modifications. What I like about the comparison of the two is that the paintings feel very 'painter-ly' to me, while the tapestry does have a very 'weaver'ly' look to it. And by that, I mean that the paintings have marks that could only be made with paint, while the tapestry has marks that could only be made in the medium of tapestry. I like that kind of thing!
