“Pathways” series begins

These are detail views of a new series of small works (7″ x 7″) which involves hand-sewing embroidery floss to drawing paper.  I enjoy the intimacy and speed of working at this size and there is an immediacy in the way the colors of the bright thread interact.  I use maroon thread to anchor the embroidery floss to the page and that practical action is its own design element.
