>Beaded Portrait in Progress

Today, I want to show you my beading work space! There are shell pink coloured seed beads everywhere! Is your beading table neater or messier than mine?😮

Anyways, I am working on the second felt piece for my beaded Abigail Adams portrait. At this point, I am still not sure I like it, or if it even looks like Abigail! It always amazes me how adding beads to an idea really transforms it into something almost completely different… How do you think she looks so far?😮

Regardless, I plan to keep working on this over the weekend. I may also be getting some last minute entry materials together for an upcoming contemporary art exhibition. And, I will be listing new items in my Etsy shop, including my ‘Bluebird in New Hampshire‘ painting! In case you hadn’t noticed, I have added a new section for books & magazines in my shop. If there are any old Bead & Button or Beadwork magazines you are looking for, please stop by & take a peek!🙂

What will you be working on this weekend?🙂
