...more sheep shaping



I keep chipping away at this one... lots of fun color and texture starting to develop in the wool! A couple more productive sessions like this one and then I can start planning a design for the frame (maniacal laughter)!

Framework

I have been experimenting a little more with Cholla cactus bark (I made my first frame back in Dec.). I really liked how the "wool" woven into the frame, served as an extension of the painting. I am starting to see new possibilities as my prototype versions start to evolve. Have any of you messed-around with framing materials? Thinking out loud/going forward, I would like to figure out a treatment for the corners that would be structurally sound, but not obscure as much of the frame. Any ideas?
