The sketch for this piece was penciled out a couple of years ago and at that time I made an attempt at the felting part too. I stalled and almost tossed it in the trash. Just the other day I happened upon it while looking for wool canvas. I still wasn't sure what to do with it but decided to pull it out and put it aside.
I have a couple of projects I'm feeling keen about but yesterday was one of those days in the studio when nothing I tried worked out. Feeling frustrated I switched gears and laid this half started attempt on the table. I ripped part of it out and started again and I have to say I'm glad I did (I really should have taken a before photo). It's such a sweet piece, don't you think?
Still some finishing to do on the background, maybe a tweak or two yet, but I'm excited to have something come together, and surprised that it was this piece, and wanted to share that.
It needs a good title and/or she needs a name. Suggestions?
