I finally got started on the You Are Beautiful piece for next month's installation at Flourish Studios in Chicago. Dowels were sanded, but not yet cut down. I am going to give them a couple of coats of clear coat but it's been rainy here all day so that will wait. Paper is torn down and the first wash is on them. I have enough pieces started to sew into the frame to make the I. I'm still debating about the two sides, which are essentially negative space. I have a few plans but I think I need to get a little further along with the ink first.
