Wow, you can't image how good it is to get back into the studio. It's been about three weeks and while I had a great time visiting our son's family, I've missed working.
This is the way my mind is headed on this piece. I will trim the thread painted portrait and place it on the background with the vine wrapped around the post (not finished yet). I will then finish Hannah's head and hair with thread painting.
I'm hoping I'm going in the right direction. Any input would be appreciated.
