'Whitey Plummer'  -work-in-progress'

'I created this piece from a photo taken by a friend of a curious horse by a fence.  Critical to pulling this off was to replicate that soft nose with a blend of black, gray, and pink. This was one of my first art collage projects, and done before I added a free motion, long-arm sewing machine to my collection.  All the sewing was done with a traditional sewing machine.  The additional of free motion sewing using an long arm is definitely a luxury I cannot do without now. 

The finished piece is 24" x 36" 

This was the last project I used a piece of cotton as the backing and now use a non-fusible heavy interfacing instead.  It eliminates the nightmare of wrinkles.
