All About Anatomy

Well I've been a bit busy lately and haven't had a lot of free time. I'm steadily working on pieces for my art show in July at the Visual Art Exchange. I can't believe it's so soon! Yikes. I'm also in the middle of moving across town to a larger apartment and can't wait to have more space for things. Colby and I have been cramped up in this one bedroom for too long. So we'll have a second room for my art area and I really hope to be more productive. I also just finished up a small piece for a swap on flickr. The Phat Quarter group did an ATC swap based on the theme "anatomy." At first I was going to go very literal with it and started searching through my old copy of Gray's Anatomy. There were definitely some great images, but then I thought about doing some animal's anatomy. I looked at everything from pigs to otters to snakes and then settled on a bird, mainly just because I love birds. So here's the final piece--about 5"X7", not quite standard ATC size but I really struggle with small pieces. I very pleased with it!

A bit of a close-up of the anatomy bits.

I really like this image too.

My wonderful partner sent this to me. It's called "Love Your Vagina." Super tiny stitches that amaze me and she just finished it off so well. Can't wait to hang it in my new place.
