Ruby is an original fine fiber art wool painting. The dimensions are 16” x 20”. “Ruby”, is made with wool, horsehair, paper, silk and cotton on canvas. Created in 2021. Dripping wet Ruby looked across the water at Madam Bledsoe, watching the moment of vulnerability pass from the old woman’s face and settle into her much more typical scowl. Ruby may have been known for her patience, but even she had her limits. Her face and neck tingled as frustration surged through her. She started to snap “You know I don’t need this job…” but cut herself off mid-sentence and banged the water with her fist instead. That had been their deal.
Keeping Original Felt Fine Art Clean – Contrary to popular belief, wool art is easy to maintain. It can last hundreds, if not thousands of years if it is consistently treated well. Mounting your wool art on a wall in indirect sunlight will deter pests, which require dark areas with little to no air flow to reproduce. Dust is easily dislodged by patting the work from behind or firmly tapping the frame while holding the work face down. Dust can also be removed with canned air if desired.
