I have a headache
My February piece is called "I have a headache." This piece represents a headache, something I have all too often. I really wanted to see if I could visually express how a headache feels. On the left is the full piece. At the bottom of the circle is my right eye, and to the left are bugles, which represent daggers of pain. Going up, there is a band of throbbing on my forehead. The headache swirls around, going from one side of my head to the other. The black areas are the headache spreading upward, and the gray represents the dull feeling left over after a headache. This was a very hard piece to work on. It tired me out, and I had to force myself to pick up my needle and work on it. Nonetheless, I think I accomplished a great headache!
