2012 #20, hand dyed wool and egg tempera on linen, 16 x 12 3/4 in.
With these three recently completed hooked wool drawings I wanted to have three very different compositional ideas. In #20 the overlapping shapes create an illusion of transparency, thin and airy, held in by a wool line.
2012 #21, hand dyed wool and egg tempera on linen, 14 x 12 in.
#21's red line meanders across the surface, while painted shapes have an illusion of form. The line flips from a flat design to one moving forward and back in space, though I think the illusionistic aspect tends to take over.

In this final work, a bit of humor as a semicircle precariously tilts atop a platform, while under it, another sits solidly on the ground. This medium encourages me to be inventive, and to have fun.
