hoop portraiture...something new.



ONE 14" embroidery hoop
ONE photograph
ONE piece of lush linen
ONE pencil (4b and 6b)
ONE tub of acrylic white
ONE paintbrush
ONE sepia pencil

my new portrait project.

Want one? I'd love to make one for you...

What did you get up to this weekend?

That is just beautiful, Char! I love the very muted tone you get with the pencil and sepia pencil and white on the linen. Wonderful!! Love, Silke

These are wonderful! I love the look, and your artwork is amazing. I'm wondering if one of our Ghana photos would make a nice hoop portrait. They have an old-world look to them, don't you think?
