I always find it a little tough (in the best possible way that art is tough) to be at this point: the loom is threaded, my background decided and dyed, my composition chosen, the first few inches of background cloth woven, but I am stumped by the plethora of colour choices available for my inlay imagery. I hum and haw, arrange and squint, trying to decipher my gut instinct which is usually spot on.......
this will be a piece based on the the percentage of growth in various aspects (fruit and veg, animal products, maple syrup, herbs, field crops) of organic farming in Atlantic Canada. I want it to be bright and optimistic, hence the sunrise/set sky of the cotton warp.
