"Between you and me, I am not deep, but very wide..."- Honore de Balzac ................. + hanging (out with) Paul and Laura
"...and it takes time to walk around me."-- Honore de Balzac in a letter he wrote to Countess Clara Maffei
I like the use of the word "wide" (epais) in reference to the expansiveness of oneself.
I used two layers of an old cotton blanket for the backing.
When viewed from the back, the stitching of the writing looks like its own cuneiform system.
Paul and Laura
Otherwise this week, I decided Paul and Laura belonged together, so I suspended them from a wooden dowel with butcher's twine...
I was thinking of Piero della Francesca's Duke and Duchess of Urbino
