Fish On Fridays

So named because I seemed to find myself stitching on it on Fridays for some reason.  You may recall this little fishy from a previous post, and I finally got around to putting him in some water - albeit a stylized, modern interpretation of water.

This little project is an attempt to combine my love of the very traditional craft of embroidery with my love of modern art.  It's a first step.  Another experiment.  Seems like everything I make is an experiment.  But, I do feel that I'm getting closer to what I'm searching for.  Overall, I am very satisfied with this piece because it does seem to be a major step toward developing my own personal style (I hope!)

Thanks for visiting, and happy stitching!!!

I think this is a very cool contemporary piece. It will be fun to watch how your "style" evolves and becomes your identity.

Love this post on "developing your own personal style".
Thank you for stopping by ~ sorry no tips on rooting ginger but if you do try I'd love to see how it works :-)
Have a great weekend.

Good morning to you! I love your "New" style.It's important to develop your own signature look and that is what you are doing. The deep blues and purples of the sea are a wonderful contrast to the fish ( who, I might add, is simply a stunner!)
