Ruth Manning/ Postcript on the Gloves

In the summer of 2015 my tapestry based on the white gloves I wore came to a conclusion. The piece is mounted on a painted canvas and I sewed a row of tiny pearl beads at the top edge of the weaving.

I’m pleased with the piece, especially the expression. She’s unsure but not timid and knows quite a bit about life already.

Most of all she certainly doesn’t resemble me so it can’t be a selfie, right?
