Rachael Goldman Week #1
This is my wall. I began to work on a similar piece 18 months ago when I came back from a month in Jerusalem with my family. But I could never complete it. I felt completely blocked, so instead of just a reminder of my beloved Jerusalem and the Western Wall, it became a symbol of my blockage. Now, by working on a smaller version, which is 9x9, I feel opened up a and a lot more free. I layered the base color of the wall with gelatin printing. Then I free motion stitched in the stone divisions. I added the gold, blue and black markings in with a piece of bubble wrap.
If I forget thee Jerusalem
