While I've been living with the Fashion Plate series on my wall, I've begun to see a few things that I'd like to change, beginning with this piece. I've added a creamy white over the entire dress as the original dress is unbleached muslin, but also want to add some more washes of dark shadows and perhaps some stamping using the images I had carved for my daughter to stamp the fabric in the first place. I've been wanting to use the sugar skull I created for her for some time and wonder if that is what would complete this piece for me. It's always a challenge...to leave things as they are or to alter them slightly. That is probably my greatest difficulty when I live with my work too long, I become more critical and want to make changes. Sometimes it's successful, other times it's not. Hopefully this is a good decision.
