Finally, finally finished the largerpiece I began over a month ago. It amazes me how switching sizes or media when I am struggling with a piece helps to resolve the work. Even when I'm not working on it, I'm working on it in some respect. It's kind of like writing down a problem before you go to bed so that your brain can continue working on it. I kept thinking of these prairie travellers. Those people who came before us and moved with their food source...different animals to hunt, different berries and other local vegetation to gather.
I have also listed tipi #3 in my etsy shop here...this one was fun as it was the first based on a watercolour I had created on our trip through Montana this summer. To me it feels a little more abstract (is that possible?) because I used simple triangle shapes, not elaborating too much, other than on the mark-making, of course.
