Ocean Going

There's nothing like having a good studio assistant!

I painted this one into it's ocean yesterday. I finally gave up on the stained and dirty linen that it was stitched over. What was I thinking? Even after embroidering over dozens of little spots of rust, it still just looked dirty. I like this so much better.   You can see some closeups here, and here.

This is awesome, you finally figured out how to integrate painting and stitching in a wonderful, original, self-expressing way - this is just the beginning of a new era, I'm sure, and it will be a very fruitful one for your artistic journey :)
