This is my daughter and her husband's dog Marley. Marley just loves the snow. This photograph was taken by another daughter of Marley out for a walk in the snow. Her expressions is of pure joy! Thinking about this theme I thought of this photograph and felt it was the perfect picture to create.
I decided to give thread painting a try. I took a class from Jennifer Day several years ago. I dug out her book to reread. I had the photo printed on fabric and went to work.
Here is detail of the thread painting.
I am amazed how much thread goes into the thread painting. This was a fun project.
Here is a picture of the back which show how much thread there is.
