I entered this piece in a show last year. It didn't get chosen and sat around for more than a year. I finally got it out and took it off the board it was mounted on, worked on getting it blocked. I bought a canvas for it last week and painted the canvas and sewed it to the canvas last night. In the photo, the dark grey above the green looks black. It is not black, but very dark grey. I do like the silver highlights in the canvas, they reflect the light differently as you move around the room. Now we have to find a place for it in our house.
