Here is the latest embroidery based on a block doodle, with some random embroidery doodling added because I wasn't done sewing or something.
The stitched doodling has started me off on another experiment. The embroidery I am currently working on is a.) white on white and b.) entirely free hand, not based on anything. I am embroidering like I doodle, just letting myself sew whatever the needle comes up with.
Can this work? The preliminary verdict is yes, but I have just begun to work on this one.
Why am I not painting? I am spending all my time embroidering and folding books, rather than painting. It is disorienting. I have defined myself as a painter for so many years that it is strange to not be doing it. I am certain that I will be back at it at some point, but, for now, I have to follow the embroidery and book folding through to where ever it is leading.
I have come up with even more questions for myself then I posted yesterday. Now I have 26 questions to ponder while I work.
