A mixed media stitched piece based on Ophelia, a character in Shakespeare's "Hamlet". This is an ongoing series of literary themed pieces, mainly women, both tragic and triumphant in literature. All are beloved by me. Ophelia is now becoming the ghost, lost in her watery grave, pining away from the thing that could have been. She is hand and machine stitched, quilted and embellished. There are 3-d elements and some painting as well. Hand dyed silk and commercial fabrics were used.
