Watt & Shand #10 Underway

Watt & Shand #10 is underway. It features images from May of 2008, when the facade of the original building was still supported by an elaborate scaffolding, and the framework of the Marriott was rising up behind. I was interested in one of the intersections of the old construction and the new, a corner that jutted out on King Street and gave a glimpse into the interior.
This one features cyanotypes and digital prints, and the color scheme is rather bold, in a good and exciting way that really sets off the prints. Right now it looks a bit stark, but the quilting will calm and unify it.

It's time to take a break from creating tops--as addictive and engaging as that is-- and focus on quilting and finishing the ones I have stacked up and waiting. I am well on track towards having the series done in time for the exhibition at the Arts Hotel Gallery in March 2010.
If you are new here, you can track back this project by clicking on Watt & Shand under Labels in the right sidebar.
And a Happy Solstice to one and all! More daylight will be a very good thing.

Thank you Adrian, and the same to you and yours. It's a white Christmas here this year, cold but very beautiful.
