she is

on cotton-silk - 100x100cm

a profound realisation about the limitations I have working from home.. I shall take this as a learning experience.

- 1st problem is to try and find a stretching frame and work position that is adapted.

2nd problem - is the dyeing.. I need bigger dye tubs and the possibility to make a bit of a mess - which I can't do in my kitchen.

3rd problem - I think I had a problem with the mix of wax, the dosing of beeswax and paraffin.  The background was supposed to be very detailed, but somehow the little lines all disappeared in the last dark dye.

I like the idea I started out with, but have to rethink exactly how to get what I want.
