My latest commission

Here it is. My brother's commissioned tapestry. He is living in Costa Rica and, not only he is a wonderful person, he is a great photographer. He has been traveling quite a bit and he has beautiful shots. This is one night shot from the Arenal Active volcano. It was so challenging to weave black over black, and after weaving and un-weaving the background, I decided to blend a bit of grey wool into it to "melange" the contour and not loosing the intention of the impressive lava flow.
I used wool, cotton, linen, synthetic and metallic yarns.
