Art Every Day, Saturday, February 9, 2013,
Here is today's new piece. I really didn't do my idea justice. Looking at it now, I realize that the colored bits should have been much smaller, with more variety. They look too chunky. And, hurry, does not make a straight line. I managed pretty well in the white portion, but the lines in the dark grey got a little angled near the middle and I do not really like that.
However, the piece is really showing how differently the colors play off against the two dispirit backgrounds. Note how the colors seem brighter against the edge of the dark gray background and duller against the edge of the white background. However again, the colors seem brighter where the circles are stitched with white and duller where they are stitched with gray. I enjoy seeing/recognizing how much colors and neutrals effect each other.
Now I'm off to the last day of the show at the Merchandise Mart.
P.S., Miss Christa, thank you for your constancy in fabulous comments!
