Hi Fellow Weavers,
(Although I am not sure I am a weaver yet!) Here is one my last two tapestries, actually I should say 3 because this is the 2nd version of this Greek Youth. I will not be sharing the first version!!He was done from a photo of a girl but thought (s)he looked more masculine than the photo. And the girl was so very pretty too. Oh, well. Reminds me of the poor baby in 1985 who suffered from the malfunctioning circumciser at Northside... I was pregnant at the time and prayed for a girl because of that story! Boy, girl, tapestry. I used a lazy line in the blue! Can you see it?
Here is the last one I have done using only one strand of wool. The Greek Youth used 2. I think I like one better, I have a hard time keeping more than 1 taut. I only had to take her head off once but am a little disappointed at the results. I though she would look fabulous but I find her a little boring. I am thinking of my next one, think I will crib some designs by Seguay (spelling?) from the New York Public Library website. If you haven't been there to see their digital image library, you need to go. It is wonderful. It was the souce for both of these people but no way would you be able to recongnize them.
Thanks Tommye, for your encouragement. You must be the best teacher ever. I know your college students will miss you!
