sunrise and an earth rug

this was this mornings sunrise on the farm.

and heres the first rug off of my new loom! I told myself it was a potentially sacrificial rug since theres so much to learn about a new and different loom and i tried to keep it simple in design so that i could concentrate more on the mechanics and less on some complicated pattern. in the end it turned out to be not too bad! its 30"x51" and made of karakul yarn hand dyed with various plant dyes like cota and cochineal and walnut hulls.
and heres a detail of the center and its for sale...if anyones interested just drop me line!
