The last two weeks have been busy doing a little of this and a little of that, leaving me very little time in the studio. However, I have been able to sneak in, every now and then, to finish this small thread painted piece.
When I make a small piece I like to mat and frame the finished art work. I feel that it often looks lost on the wall unless you have a grouping of like-size pieces. My original idea was to place the finished piece in a shadowbox. Like this.
After I had the piece pinned to the background I placed it on my design wall. As I passed the piece I kept looking and wondering what it would look like if I cut out the light background and just leave the bird and tree. So I took a photo of the piece. Cut it out and pinned it to the black background. This is what it looked like.
Now the question is which do I choose. I think I've made up my mind but I would like to hear what you have to say.

Off the Wall Friday. Lots of wonderful blogs to view right from this web site. As I look at Nina Marie's blog and see the photographs of snow it makes me very thankful I live in the South. Did my dues in NW PA for many years. Been there done that.
