The Rusty Woman Makes Her "Rustiness" Appearance

She is complete and ready to take that dip on her 65th birthday. I think sunset would be the best time, less folks on the beach to view her rusty beauty in late February. Realize the water will be a wee bit chilly...but making it to 65 is a major event, and a little chill is no big thing or perhaps it may be a big thing.

Definition of RUSTY:

* to become corroded * to deteriorate or degenerate through inactivity or neglect * weakened or impaired by neglect, disuse, or lack of practice * working or operating stiffly, or incorrectly because of rust

That pretty much desribes this old body of mine.

If you would like to read about the making of this piece check on the right side of blog for past entries on the rust dyeing of fabric, the building of her piece by piece, etc. It was a lot of fun making this piece.
