Icelandic Dreaming

In the Studio a month and half ago after milling through thousands of thoughts of what the next project would be with the newly acquired Large Ashford loom, a photo of Icelandic sheep shared via Instagram by luxefibers inspired me to attempt a animal portrait.  You say Icelandic sheep?  Yeah... Icelandic sheep!  They are so beautiful with their wooly coat that I just can not resist them. 


Here are several progress photos from a few weeks ago... This will be the work that will worked on at the Artisan Market tomorrow.  Lots of lush fibers for sure.  

 The sheep is finally starting to take shape and will be completed by noon on Sunday if all goes as planned.  The background will be filled in with the remaining landforms and sky.  Can't wait to see how it comes out.
