'The Big Wave'  -work-in-progress'

''Cormorants' - I recreated this using fabrics and thread using my photo of these entertaining seabirds. A few of the features that were new to create were the worn ropes (primarily created with thread), and the reflection of the rusty ship buoy in the water - a beautiful blend of golds, copper, burnt orange.

The finished piece is 22" x 28" and was framed.

The Big Wave - includes different types of waters: ocean, coastal waves, tidal waters. Created with fabrics and threads I tried to capture these different types of water effects.  I always start with pinning the different fabric pieces, tacking them in place with a small amount of glue, then sewing them in place in addition to adding addition details using thread.
