The fields are being planted here in Nebraska where I live and this piece was inspired really by that. When I saw the challenge, I had just finished this piece the day before and felt it really did meet the challenge. Since I have been unable to participate in the last several challenges, I decided to post this.
This piece was formed fully in my head the night before and constructed from cast offs from my mom's weaving stash. Grey wool and wool blend strips were overlapped to create the ground and fibers and ribbons and synthetic strips were needle felted to the ground.
So after I had it all finished, I went back and looked at the research done for the challenge and really fell in love with Mr. Goldsworthy's work. I have begun another piece and will share it later this week.
