Art Every Day, February 21st, 2013,
Here is today's new piece of work. I had this moody, dark gray/black piece of fabric that was just begging to be night sky. So, I let it. I used pure white for the moon and quilted it like Swiss cheese with circles of various sizes. I then stitched the background with very energetic all over, small triangles. Then, I selected a few fabrics from each of the twelve colors and cut short, narrow strips. I started with smaller pieces in the cooler colors in the upper left and made the pieces larger as the colors got warmer as they moved across the surface to the lower right. I'm very pleased with both the sense of movement and dimension.
To quote my student/friend, John, "My eyes are enjoying looking at it".
