…Continued from last photo:
Detail of rope knotted figure I completed in 2000.
This was a traumatic time for me, and I was in art therapy. Yes, its supposed to be disturbing and frightening…if you see it that way.

Detail of front seated figure:
The limbs are flexible, and the ends are wrapped in string. No glue, or sewing was used in this figutre. Figure is a bit over 12 inches tall .

It was difficult to paint the cotton rope but I used a dry brush to sponge and stipple the paint on. I used metallic acrylic paints in gold, pearl, pink, and blue, as well as a non metallic red.

Figure sits on a rusty "found" spring. Figure is removable.

The inner core is a cardboard toilet paper tube, upon which I wrapped and knotted thick natural cotton rope.

I really, really wanna thank everyone for commenting and favoriting-it REALLY means the world to me. I look back on the beginning of my project when I had maybe one or two people following me. It blows my mind to know I have come so far and progressed so much in these 10 months. I give you my undying gratitude.

Not feeling this picture too much. I made the weird vignette thing by myself so it’s not a texture…didn’t turn out quite as I had imagined but it’s still kinda cool. I didn’t do a vintage effect on this one (for one) though I am a bit curious now lol

Hope everyone is doing well! Know I look forward to all the pictures you guys make even if I don’t get the chance to comment! You do wonderful work 🙂 I’m always impressed by the things you guys create, please don’t doubt your abilities!

TRF: I have voice lessons in about 20 minutes, then I finally can shower, then time to pound out an ethics paper. Fun fun
