One more piece for the show

Yesterday, I put finishing touches on a piece I started about a month ago, and I'm going to try and find a way to display it at Flagstaff Open Studios Tour this weekend:
I call it "Meandering" because that's what it made me think of when I looked at the finished piece.  It is a fabric collage in the same style as "Study in Contrast" that you can see here.  With "Meandering", I decided to bind the edges and remove the fringe I originally started with.  I have suspended it on a piece of Juniper wood as I did with "Study in Contrast".  Having completed two pieces using this technique, I hope to explore more ways to use fiber collage to create wall hangings, perhaps incorporating found objects and/or non-fiber objects in the pieces, so stay tuned. 
On another note, we are due for some heavy Monsoon weather this weekend, and I'm hoping it does not discourage art lovers from attending.  We have 65 artists displaying their work at 34 locations throughout the Flagstaff area both days.  This is my fifth year participating in the tour, and I  am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces as well as new visitors!

Thanks, Lynda. I wish I could take the tour AND be a part of it! That's the only drawback to participating... I only get to see the pieces on display in our Prelude Exhibit. But I love this show, and will probably continue to be in it. I plan to take pictures this weekend and will post next week, so at least you can see the work of my two fellow artists as well as my display.
