As usual, choosing colors has proved to be a challenge, so I even snapped a few pics with thread in place to gauge how it looked. Here is sad girl as of Sunday afternoon - looking at her in a wrinkled state was not inspiring me, so I whipped out some wooden stretcher bars and tape to take this progress shot. You can see the faint hints of a banner across the top and two small birds.
I based this all on a quick drawing (above) I did a couple of weeks ago, but I still have ideas in my head that didn't make it onto the page. I'm mainly thinking of the idea of sadness, of things and words that make me sad - I'm not sure why but I feel like it's something I want to express... and no, I'm not extremely sad! :) To me it represents how people experience emotions, but don't necessarily dwell on them or talk a lot about them... More to come.
