In Memory of a Canyon
This is a combination of traditional tapestry (the flat areas) and hand-knotted deep pile. And, again,
I gave myself additional challenges by choosing weft yarns of widely varying sizes and textures (much more difficult to keep the piece flat). The imspiration was a photograph I took while hiking in the slot canyons of Glenn Canyon before it was "drowned."
It is stretched around canvas stretchers and the finished size is 36" w by 48" h.
