Love the contrast of the different colors.... Also dig how the color works to create depth (I can have trouble thinking in three dimensions (okay, insert joke here) but clearly you have it down.

What is the "base" for the rug, and what material is being "tufted"? Acrylic? Wool? (Maybe dumb questions, I'm not familiar w/ the process- though an old roommate was a dealer of imported rugs.

(No, he really was a "rug dealer"). I better quit this post now....

I've known a few " rug dealers" in my time.

Beautiful- almost too nice to be stepped on. That being said, my old friend (the rug dealer) always said that event though rugs are pieces of art, they are meant to be walked on. He really felt that was part of their beauty. He was, admittedly, WAY into rugs.

Dawn, can't wait to see more designs....

I think I got all the new fabric designs out of my brain so I can move onto the next thing.































Next is the RUXOTICA logo, then I can finally get back to painting
