Happy New Year...brrrrr
I thought that this was an appropriate image for New Year's Day: a hand needle felted card, with an impressionistic image of a sunset on icy snow and water. I looked out the window of my new office the other night as the sun went down; the icy snow had a purplish cast, and the sky was pinky orange. The colors here are pumped up, and certainly it doesn't look exactly like the east side of Manhattan as viewed from Roosevelt Island...I used a lot of artistic license. And Santa...I'm still waiting for the needle felting machine...my hand is getting sore from punching the needles in by hand. This is made from commercial felt, dyed roving (unprocessed wool...thanks Gabriela) and commercial yarn.
