(Non) Exhibition 2

This is only a non-exhibition because I didn't show my work at Off the Rails Gallery this month. We had a tree drawing competition instead. However, I have painted some of my canvases, and couldn't resist starting a tapestry. More has been done since this photo was taken. I love working with fabric strips which I am using across double warps. The moth will be woven in yarn across single warps, which I hope will give the completed work a nice textural feel. The two pics here are of my design (left) and its progress as a tapestry. I have pictured them both side-on (as I am weaving the tapestry on its side). Final hanging will see it (them) rotated to the right, so the pupa is upright in its silken tunnel.
