Chicago River at night
Part of my ongoing "Reflection" series, featuring strands of color to emulate reflected color and movement on water.
Embroidery is created by hand, directly onto the postcard, using French cotton embroidery thread and hand-dyed silk thread.
The vintage postcard (postmarked 1973) features Merchandise Mart at night along the Chicago River. It measures about 4"x6" and is unframed. The piece will be signed and dated on the back in pencil.
Please note, as this is a vintage postcard, it features heavy wear along the edges of the postcard, including small tears along the top edge as well as indentation of the postmark from the reverse side, as shown in the photographs.
