Storm Sky

This is the finished ball of wool following my first yarn dying. It is much more muted than I intended.
This is what it looked like still wet just after the dying process.

The same tomato!

I am still painting this same tomato and I'm going to paint it until someone eats it!

Tuesday, 1 February 2011


I painted this tomato today as I have been inspired by all the Folksy people posting their art on the ACEO, Art Cards Originals and Editions, thread.
