The Eyes or magic condensed in a cloud of eyes?

This post is all about work in progress. My way of creating – ups and downs, and adventures along the way.

This is the beauty I am currently creating.

I’ve started some time around the summer. But I always get distracted, procrastinate, switch projects etc. Some projects end up in the drawer forever. And at some point I was seriously afraid that these eyes will stay in the darkness too. And then someting happened.

Long story short, there was that poor person that hit the canvas in the middle, broke one element of the stand and my embroidery was left wry and miserable in the corner of the room.

After a few days I decided I this is not how I want it to be. I fixed the stand, stretched the canvas and came back to my project.

That’s me and beginning of Eye-sy stitching feast.
eyes on fabric
Early stages when I compose polymer clay elements and loosely stitch them on the fabric.
The cloud of eyes – hand embroidery mixed with polymer clay. Work in progress.

Now I clearly see the ending and I am eager to finish the whole painting.

More updates are coming soon.
