MIDNIGHT PONY. Hand punch-embroidered by me, May 2018. Designed by Rob McClellan; design is ©2018 to University Silkscreen of Norman Oklahoma, all rights reserved. With heartfelt thanks to University Silkscreen for giving me permission to use this image in my work. I punched this (it's about 8 or 9" wide) using an UltraPunch needle with a medium tip set on #2 and using lace-weight hand-dyed wool yarns. I took the design from one of my favorite t-shirts (see the story in yesterday's post). A bad photograph, all my fault!
For the story behind this project and the artist who designed the t-shirt at the left, please take a moment to read yesterday's post.
There will be a third piece in this series, probably coming later this summer. Stay tuned.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
