|This is an abstract based originally on a collage of old paintings of mine. But I have had fun playing with colours and mixed thread in a wide interpretation. It's easy to see I love colour!|

I have been quiet on the tapestry front for a while but nevertheless have been busy doing lots of assignments for my Diploma course. I am doing a large tapestry as my final assignment for this year and it is so... slow. I thought I would put this image of it in progress. As I am using a rolling warp, part of it has been rolled under. It is 46cm wide and will be 86cm long excluding the hem. This image shows about the halfway mark.

I haven't used pastels for years but decided to try a painting of an old Greek man I photographed on the seafront on the Greek island of Leros last June. The skin colour looks too red here but he was weather beaten anyway.
