Unfinished Project #3 (and more masks)
One of my resolutions in January was to finish some of the projects I had started but never completed. Most of these involve fiber, as a lot of the stitching I do is very time-consuming. I finished #2 a few weeks ago, although I did do a #1 1/2 in the middle of #2. So that’s 3 projects in 7 months.
This one has been looking at me for a long time. I picked out the knit swatch I wanted to use and pinned it on the canvas shortly after I finished the first swatch mask I did (https://methodtwomadness.wordpress.com/2014/09/26/saturnalia/)
The masks I drew and posted yesterday form a continuous line in my museum-going life. Even though for years I did very little drawing, I always took a sketchbook and drew masks in museums.
I drew some initial ideas for the stitching on this mask, but I’ve been reconsidering as I look through all my references.
I will probably end up taking elements from a few places, and also adding what seems to fit the face as I go along. That’s what I did last time anyway. Can I finish by the end of the summer?
