New Canvas

Okay, bare with me, I'm weeks behind on posts. This is the first piece of "The Other Side". This piece is made up of 3 major pieces...the two sides are 4 feet wide by 3 feet high. I'm starting with wire mesh left over from our house siding project and wrapping the wire completely with single knots.

In this close up you can see the variety of stuff I'm using. A steel gray weaving wool yarn, a very raw loosely spun white wool, and metallic embroidery floss. It took me about 14 days of work to complete the entire piece with knots. Now my canvas is primed and ready!!
