And More Progress

paper lace

I have cited lace as an inspiration for some time now and I can't help but be drawn to it here in Belgium where there is a tradition of lace making. Beautiful lace is everywhere here! I'm also looking at a lot of Flemish paintings in which ruffs and lace collars are prevalent. Now I'm working on a series of ruff studies in different materials including paper, plastic, and metal. There will be Belgian lace, too. I just haven't gotten any yet.
