Starry Night pattern traced and numbered
According to the doctor, my foot surgery went "perfectly". I get my stitches out tomorrow. I'm walking pretty well but will be saddled with the "Frankenstein" boot for about 4 weeks longer until the bones fuse.
Today, using carbon paper and manila folders, I traced and numbered the pattern for "Starry Night". Pictured is the pattern itself ... The marked manila folder pattern is underneath it, ready to be cut.
In addition to the pattern maker Chantal Pare 's interpretation, I have color references from 3 other renditions of this pattern as well as a color printout of the original painting by Van Gogh. I will take all 5 interpretations into account as I choose the glass. This window will have just over 200 pieces.
I've started a log to keep track of how many hours this one takes to complete, as I do with all my windows. Its good to be back in my studio ... I've missed it!
