After encouragement to work big again, and fix what I perceived as problems on the last big laced piece, I started this one. The thread texturing on the background is darker, and lets more of the browns show through. The river has more different colors and sizes of circles. I have one last layer to put on, a line of small circles in varied pinky-oranges, and then I will hammer holes in it to lace it together. More better photos coming soon.
I have shift back to landscapes after I finish this piece. I have a request for some snowy New England views, in stark contrast to what we have going on here at the moment.
