Yeah!!!

I have finished laying out the paintings. I'm happy with the compositions and the flow. I stood on chairs a lot trying to see the compositions. Up and down and back and forth to make sure the elements I wanted traveling from one painting to the next were in the right spots. Glad I had the drawings. I haven't seen the paintings together yet or vertical (except in Photoshop) so I can't wait to see them all on a wall after the felting process.

The paintings now.

I had a minor stopping point when a dark blue variegated yarn I wanted to use for texture starting turning my hands blue. I had to wash the yarn and quite a bit of dye ran out. I wasn't sure what colors would be left when it dried but it ended up working well in the paintings.

Some of the details.

This is an example of how the elements could mix in the felting process. This is from another painting so imagine, if you will, the color scheme of the Currents series to get an idea of how the pieces and colors will meld together.
