Oh how I love color. But I love neutrals too! Yesterday's piece was so warm and mysterious. Today's piece is bold and in your face. I just love how white; pure light, is able to trump color, all of the glorious color that is in this piece can't hold a candle to the bright white of the stitched swirls. I did all that I could to make the variety of colors in the background stay in the background, mostly by stitching it down in just one, dark dull color in an all over design. I just love it when my experiments work and with the exception of the three small swirls in a row on the lower portion of the piece, I kinda like it.
P.S. a shout out to both Christa and Steph as well as the rest of you who comment - thank you from me and a lot of my students who appreciate your discussions on the pieces - can't thank you enough!
