Today, just a quick photo of my current project. This is my semi-beaded portrait of Abigail Adams. (If you are a new reader, you can learn about my inspiration for this project HERE.) I worked on this a little when I was in Venice, but I completed most of it when I got home. This piece is a little different than my usual style, for reasons unknown even to me. Probably because it is a rendition of a human face! My version is a contemporary one at that, perhaps inspired by the mosaics & masks I saw in Italy. As usual, I’m not sure I like it just yet.. I guess I’ll just have to keep on beading to see how she turns out!
