I had just started sketching a Great Blue Heron onto hand dyed cloth, when I suddenly had to switch gears and create a new seahorse design. Now that my seahorse has been turned in to the Seahorse Dream committe, it' time to return to painted cloth. This has been on my easel, so I have taken some swipes at it as I mixed paint this past week. My next step is to trapunto the bird. I don't intend to complicate this one. I think he is just going to stand in shallow areas of water. I'll do that by applying sheers around his feet after the trapunto is done. Here is is so far. Time to get to work!
