New Work Reworked- The Fence As Lace #9

The Fence As Lace #9
mixed media on stiffened fabric
48" x 44"

Since creating The Fence As Lace #9, which is a part of my 11 piece (so far) The Fence As Lace series, when I was at the Vermont Studio Center, I wasn't all that happy with it, but I wasn't sure what it needed to make me happy. Since my arrival home almost two weeks ago, I've had it hanging on my studio wall, and I've been looking at it and thinking.

Yesterday I took the plunge and cut into it, and then I did some stitching and painting, and now I'm much happier.

Above is the piece reworked, and below is what it looked like before I started cutting into it. Detail shots of this reworked piece can be seen on my website.
