Here's how the whole thing is looking (more or less). It's a very large piece and I am having difficult fitting all of it into one photograph.
Here's another attempt to capture the whole thing. Click on the picture and you'll see a larger version.
Photographed from the right edge you can see a bit more detail and how the middle section fits with the top sections.
Detail of the right side of the work. It was surprisingly difficult to work those meandering lines so that they looked random and natural. Some worked better than others!
Interest is maintained by using various shades of relatively neutral colours.
This photo details the left one third of the work. The brown sections will make more sense when the bottom portion is completed.
This photo shows the open weave texture of the whisper silk.
The line of black stitching near the top will be removed. It was stitched to hold the whisper silk in place. Even so, this fine, open weave silk fabric just wanted to fray at the slightest touch!
I probably won't have much time for stitching over the next two weeks leading up to my first solo show as my time will be taken up with distributing invitations and other organisational matters. I'll post more about that as happenings arise.
