I love the inquisitive Blue Jays, and can you see the Grosbeak waiting in the wings?
Backgrounds, like this, always take me a good amount of time. I seem to do as much looking as punching: looking at the photo of the original rug, looking at my color choices, looking at the bits I’ve punched ~ looking where I’m going, where I’ve been, if I’m traveling the right road. Looking is a big part of the process, at least it is for me. How about you?
Now that I’m half way there, I can see, a bit more clearly, where I’m headed. What I like about where I’ve been, is with the weavers cloth as the background, I could see a crisp, wintry scene, and I’m inspired to possibly try this design again with a soft white background. Do I like where I’m going? That’s a bit more difficult. I’m never really sure, until I actually arrive at my destination, if the journey was worth it!
until next time, friends…
