Sit. Stay. And where is this going?


Hah! The dogs will sit on command. They don't stay however. And it appears that the only time they sit and pose like this is for no reason at all. But I'd like y'all to believe that they're SO well-trained that I just tell them to sit together and they do.



Back on the naked man theme (ahem! I promise I WILL move onto printing other images, I just don't have any yet)....I also printed some onto my rust dyed fabric. Then I sewed them together with black binding and sashing.

Then I couched copper wire in random squiggles across it. You may have to click on the image to see it better.

just for fun, I also crocheted a bit of the copper wire - that's the curvy bit at the top of the photo.

What am I going to do to this next? (This is not a guessing game, I just don't have any ideas). Suggestions are welcome.

You might want to check out the nudes (male & female) at http://artnudes.blogspot.com/ for some ideas. Some of the photography is amazing.

Crochet with copper wire is pretty cool! Then over time it may go a little green which could be an added bonus.

I'm loving the naked man!! Oh and I loike what you've done with him too ;) The crotheted wire works as it gives thickness to the scribbly line.

Oh, the two headed dog decided they didn't like being that close together, or was surgery necessary to pry them apart? (vbg)

Add more of the crochet copper wire, you can also pierce the fabrics surface with small copper nails. I've done this this is a lot of fun.

I like the idea of the copper wire, but I don't think the random shape you have used adds anything to your composition. I would like to see you repeat some of the lines from the nude's back with the copper wire. Maybe repeat him sideways in copper wire across the 3 panels?

Now these naked men look pretty good to me. The addition of the copper wire is great.
