Modern Wall Hanging

My son is a modern young man .... you  know sleek leather couches no fru fru modern art etc. so  I am experimenting with a modern art
wall hanging.

I have taken multiple pictures ....  none very good.  Its hard to photograph black and shiny.  I am still working on the background.

A few close ups

Today I will  put my chop on the bottom and finish the black beading background.


  1. That's awesome Shirlee! Your son will love it.

  2. Ooh...I really like this and I bet your son love it also! It's so hard to make things for guys, especially since we love our embellishing so much. Your design is beautiful, and you're wonderful embellishing is still there...but not girlie's just perfect! xo

  3. This is so interesting! I see a soldier carrying his shield and holding his sword high. Perhaps he's hurtling forward on his chariot? I wonder what other people see.....

  4. An interesting and beautiful piece Shirlee.

  5. Yes quite a challenge for you! It is more contemporary looking! You've done a great job with this - it looks great and I love the different textures and beading!

  6. This is wonderful Shirlee! Did he like it? There's so much detail within the mod shapes. Photographing shiny stuff is hard...I've had the most luck on gray overcast days in natural light only. The other challenge is the black background...
