Here’s a progress photo of my fourth window in my new series of glass paintings When The Putty Hits The Glass. This is going to be a grouping of 10 glass panels that are meant to accompany the rugs i’ve been working away at.
For those of you who don’t know, last year I started up a rug side project called UnderToe SF. It’s been slow moving but rewarding. I’ve been working on the rug pictured below for over a year. Hundreds of hours later i am still not finished! I apologize, rug makers of the world, for thinking I can jump into something like this so effortlessly.
One of my favorite things to tell people about this project is that all the yarn included in this latch hook rug is second-hand or recycled. I’ve been lucky enough to find 100% mothproofed wool, but because its second-hand and out of production, slight discoloration has occurred. In this sense it seems to have driven my color palette.
Finally finished preliminary sketch for my next stained glass window. It doesn’t look like much now but just wait! More pictures to come…
