First off, an apology for not getting Thursday the 17th's piece up until yesterday (Friday). It was a rough day and when I finished previewing the post, I forgot to go back and hit the publish button - yikes!
Art Every Day, Saturday, January 19, 2013
Here is today's new piece. It features a simple background made from torn segments of white and tan fabric on top of black batting which was then quilted horizontally with straight lines 1/4" or so apart. Next, I added the two black strips and stitched them down. Then came the two red violet heavily stitched lines made with two threads through the needle. Finally I topped the whole thing with the three stitched swirls done in two threads also, one yellow orange and one orange. I really like the simplicity of the piece and the way the simple shapes and lines play off of the crisp background. It feels very minimalistic, crisp and clean to me. It's a stylization that I definitely want to play with some more.
Enjoy your weekend, till tomorrow,
