Raw canvas on my grandmother's upright grand piano to show size. I will frame it in a wooden floating frame, but it will have to warm up before using my new mitre saw! The raw canvas will be adhered to a wood back that will 'float' around the edges of the canvas rather like a mounted drawing on a matt, with a mitered wooden frame around it. The raw edges of the canvas will show rather than stretching the canvas on stretcher strips. I will add photos of the completed piece when the frame is all done.
Detail of cheesecloth wing. It is only adhered in a few places so that it fluffs out from the raw canvas.
Detail of the square with feather and the acrylic 'stamped' feather image from a real feather with ink detailing.
