My Troubles

$24.00 - $48.00

Wooden hoop embroidery, cotton thread and watercolor on linen.

"My troubles" is one in a series based on a pole dance competition piece that I choreographed and performed in 2023 to the song "Swimming" by Pearl and the Beard. The song has a line, "the trouble is, my troubles aren't real", which has a sort of beautiful sadness. I didn't expect how emotional this curled up sitting pose would feel, but I think it captures the feeling of having all of this worry and anxiety that only exists in your mind.

Each piece is made to order in about 1-2 weeks (plus shipping). Want to see this piece with a different background or stitch type? See my commissions page for contact details and we can work together to make your ideal version of "My troubles"!
