Today's the Reveal!!

My first piece for 'Interpret This!' will be posted this afternoon.  This has been an interesting journey, with more than one start before I got to the final design.  At first I wanted to do a thread sketch, so I made a couple of small sample pieces. Here's one, along with some sampling with my stamp and playing with Tsukineko inks for shading on the face.


OK, I thought the thread painting had potential.  So I chose my final image, the pastel portrait, and started thread painting.

Ooooh, not so sure about this!  Shannon said I looked like a green leprechaun- I'd add mean to that description.  So this got added to the crap quota.
You'll have to come back to see how this story ends!!!
