Connotation no. 28 (Black), 2012

Hand-embroidered paper collage, 12 x 12 inches.

Recently a friend asked if I had any work with black in it.

Aside from a few postcards with a bit of black and the moon series (which really has more to do with white), I was surprised to find a lack of the dark on the whole. I took this as a challenge to make a piece with black in mind.

Souvenir Views: Mini Bridges, 2012

Set of 18 hand-embroidered mini-postcards, 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches each.

A new series made just for the shop!

I picked up this set of vintage mini postcards (Souvenir Views – World’s Greatest Bridges: San Francisco by Stanley A. Piltz Company) while visiting San Francisco last month. It was an interesting challenge working with such a small surface area, and a lot of fun–especially after the last series of bigger and much more elaborately planned out pieces… which are now also available in the shop!
