This piece is called "Empty Promises" in response to some of the disheartening behavior I've witnessed this past month that's very negatively impacted one of my children. I really do not like it when people say one thing but do the very opposite, especially to the detriment of a child. I originally wanted to make the background black to match my mood, but I've already posted a black piece and I don't want to be a kill-joy. So instead, I made this one out of a purple batik that, surprisingly, I really like. I hope you can see that all the letters have been cut out. The letter theme allowed me to put into writing exactly how I felt.
Because of all the "stuff" going in my life I didn't get as far along on this as I would have liked; I still have to finish the insides of all the letters and add the binding. I think I'm going to paint the insides to prevent fraying. All this is going to take me longer than I have today, hence the "almost there" descriptor. Though it's not finished, I like this piece and I look forward to completing it. I have lots of ideas percolating as a result of my work on this one.
