Through The Reeds

Last month was a busy one for me ... I finished my house/dog-sitting and settled back into living at home among the other 6 members of my house-hold. I thought it might be 'tricky' after being away for 3 months but everything went smoothly and I managed to get my 2nd threadpainting (that I had started in January) finished.
At this same time, I was accepted into another art group, called The Harris Collective, and have been very busy doing some volunteer computer work for them since.
And ... would you believe it ?!! ... my new iMac was taken to the shop to receive a new brain ! The hard drive was factory defective !! ... but still under warranty ... yahoo !!!
Anyway,  'Through The Reeds' is my latest threadpainting and was inspired by a photograph taken (and borrowed with permission) by Wayne Bristow. He had posted it on his Flickr site and I was drawn to it over and over again.

I am very pleased with my interpretation and it will be presented at my first show with The Harris Collective. You are cordially invited to ;
