American Tapestry Alliance Show
This small tapestry has been selected for the ATA Small Tapestry International 6: Beyond the Edge. "Two Moons"©DL Rigter. I was trying to find a way to create the tapestry within their size requirements without weaving a square format. This was my solution and I'm quite pleased with it. You can read more about the upcoming show at the link above.

DL Rigter Digital Works
The new year got off to a slow start with my whole family getting a horrible bug. Things are finally getting back to normal. I have been working on the computer painting digital works because I just didn't feel well enough to paint or weave. That is one thing that I love about digital work, no mess to clean up and I can do it even when I'm not feeling 100%. Here are a few wips some may get stitched or turn into a tapestry cartoon or not. Still thinking about them. Process... and where does it take me?
I'm thinking of printing this one on linen or cotton and adding stitch. My fingers are itching to get back to stitching. I'll probably do both, free form machine stitching and hand stitch on this one. I love this natural palette. This started with graphite drawings of texture on paper with tea dyeing added. Then I worked that image further in photoshop. Excited with where these are going. Exploring mark making and layers.
Also a quick note about the Shop. It has moved but I've made it every easy and simple to get there. I just have a new provider for it. Just click the shop link in my site and it takes you there. Want to come back to my site or journal just click the Back to Site button from the Shop. It's easy. I'm running some items on sale right now and new products are coming soon. Thanks
