I really had trouble deciding on a steps piece. I had so many pictures of all sorts of "steps". I finally narrowed it down to the salmon steps that I did, but I had also started on this piece. The centre is a photo that I had taken this past winter (oh it's so nice to say past), while I was out cross country skiing. I printed it onto fabric and then placed it on a piece that I had dyed with indigo. I'm quite pleased with how all the dye lines and photo lines complemented each other. It's now glued down onto a stretched canvas that I painted. And that's another wee accomplishment - getting the colour I wanted with only primaries and black and white to work with.
