A busy week in Artlandia! I framed the phoenix and delivered it and the six 14 x 11" panoramic pieces to Thompson Giroux for En Masse (opening Dec. 2) - thumbs up!
I also (finally!) finished the fox (whoop!!) The front pretty much looks the same, but all the stitching is visible on the back. I feel a little dumb because I still don't quite know how exactly I'm going to mount this. I've thought of attaching it to a piece of Japanese paper, which would cover all the stitching on the back or sewing it to a mesh (Hmmmmmm). I'm still thinking about it, but for now, this portion is complete.
What I worked on next was the swallows (which will get a dedicated entry soon). But quickly - I finished a second big swallow, swallow #3:

Honey, on the other hand, had to have a bath (which is not her favorite thing). She really doesn't like it, but she was a brave pup (and got a bully stick afterwards to help console her ;) ). I love her fluffy coat, and especially enjoy when she is so shiny and soft and clean. I thought it might be a good time for a pup-time lapse series.
