Back at work...


This morning I am rushing around to pack the three tapestries that will be going to the Fiber Celebrated exhibit (the link is on the side bar.) "Wooster," "September," and "All Passion Spent" will be going there as soon as UPS opens this afternoon. They are all small-ish works, the largest being only 18x18". The exhibit will be in Durango, CO, which is not far away. I had planned on going to the opening with a friend, but she now cannot go, so I'm not sure I'll end up there either. The road between here and Durango includes Red Mountain Pass, which I have driven a number of times before, but never comfortably. I will have to think about how badly I want to go before I drive it alone. My husband is supposed to be on his way to Honduras that weekend, if the political troubles down there settle a bit more before that time, so I'll be on my own. A number of other artist's whose work I know will be exhibiting there, as well, so it would be nice to attend and see the work, and maybe some of them. I'll just have to see how I feel about it in a couple of weeks...

The photo above shows how I framed "Wooster". It is in an antique Arts and Crafts frame. I wouldn't normally frame a piece for exhibit that way, but I decided I would go ahead and leave it in my frame, and I believe I entered it that way. I am not going to have this piece be for sale. It is one of the few I intend to keep in my own collection. The frame looks good in my Arts and Crafts home, but I'm not sure how it will look on exhibit.

I'm impressed that you are wharing Wooster this way - and I just noticed the dog tag on his collar. I also like the frame. I know it wouldn't go with every tapestry in every situation, but it works well here. it gives the feeling of home. yea - it will be different than the others on exhibit, but that could also be very refreshing.
