You might remember this design that I had started in November. It's also the embroidered piece that I was working on in my Etsy interview. My initial plan was to make a handful of embroidered wall hangings, but the project idea had moved down my priority list the last few months. Then, in recent weeks, I received some inquiries about larger prints. I happened to have some 11 x 17 sugarcane paper in stock, so I made a test print of the new design just this morning. I was quite pleased with the way it turned out, and to create a little more pop in color, I added a few handcolored touches.
The run is a limited edition of 50 prints. To read more about the new print design, see the listing here.
I also finished a couple more small wood panel pieces this week.
When I was working on Rising Sun, I was thinking about Japan. I wanted to create something simple and calm. The title refers to the country as well as the idea that the rising of the sun brings a new day.
