OSWOA - Sewing Machine

I know it is supposed to be spring but when the day starts off at 22F (-5.6C) with blowing snow and the wind making it feel like 10F (-12.2C) and our high for the day is 32F (0C) and the continuing wind and snow making it feel like 20F (-6.7C). I certainly don't feel like working in my garden.

Today at KAGS our theme for the Still Life class was Sewing, Embroidery and Needlework.

Fortunately for me the old Singer sewing machine was one of the pieces in the display and I was able to get more details on a painting I had started a couple of years ago (see posts on 19 January 2012 and 24 July 2013) and I will finally be able to get it completed.

I also did a number of sketches of other parts of the display and I will post those at a later date.

If you would like more information about OSWOA please go to my post on 12 March 2010.

The OSWOA shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $80.00 and sold unframed.
