Gloria, my sign of spring

Today I drove the 40 minutes over to Mindemoya to visit Gloria, my framer. Water brimmed in the ditches and it was sunny. Together we chose frames for some of the drawings I did last summer and for this linen stitching. It's not often that I put textiles behind glass. These pieces are either for the Perivale gallery which opens in May or for my LaCloche gig in early July.

  1. These drawings are beautiful.
    I know what you mean about textiles/glass. Some people won't buy them unless they are behind glass.But it deadens them.

  2. One thing about putting raw edge pieces like this behind glass is it gives them a finished look. Lifts them from unfinished into art. However, I agree with you Jackie, about the fact that something is lost.
