Art Every Day, Tuesday, February 19th, 2013
Here is today's new piece. I wanted to play with melting crayons on fabrics and in so doing play with transparency when one color overlaps another color thus forming a blend or a third color. What simple fun! I love the works of both Kandinsky and Klee and wanted to do a simple color field with squares and rectangles running into and overflowing into each other. I decided on a simple but heavy grid for the quilting, using two black threads through the needle and leaving short, little tails to add just a bit of texture. All in all, a fun little experiment and a great way to start the day. Now, I'm off to boot camp and some hard exercise.
