Flowers Brim


Flowers brim even through the cracks in the sidewalk.  I started this several weeks ago and finally got around to finishing it 9in between knitting projects).  There is quite a bit of texture - I used a hardboard panel and first added some papers, then some paint base coats, some coarse pumice  gel medium to add the grains (you can see them the best in the sky) and heavy bodied acrylic paints.  Finished with scribbling using a Copic multiliner pen.

An interesting package arrived yesterday...months ago I sent some raw wool to Ohio Valley Natural Fibers to be cleaned and carded for spinning.  Seriously...months ago.  I had called them once to check on it and was thinking I was going to need to check again.  They really have a backlog of wool, it seems!

Anyway, the wool returned is a wonderful super dark color...the color of chocolate.  It's fabulous.  I guess I'm going to have to spin some soon!  Maybe I'll even be able to spin some consistent enough yarn to make another cardigan.
