This piece was commissioned by a friend who saw (on my desk) an enlarged copy of the original drawing which I had made one morning with a brush I've named "Jesus." This brush was hand made by a brush craftsman and I've grown to absolutely love many of the marks I'm able to make with it.
I'm weaving this piece on it's side. It's the first tapestry I've woven on my new monster-large loom (and the loom is wonderful). I was intimidated by how different it is from any other loom I've owned, but I see I'll be enjoying it's advantages.
Below is the tapestry as it will be presented when finished. I will be needle weaving some green marks on it after it is cut off the loom. The original drawing is laying on the tray next to the weaving.
