Art Every Day, Friday, March 1, 2013
Wow! Two months and 60 pieces of art down and today's piece might have been the most fun so far.
This piece began with a piece of white fabric thrown down on some black batting and curvy line stitching with a multicolored, bright hued thread. After the stitching was done I added the solid black strip which I topped with the five squares that were stamped with black ink. After I top stitched those down I added the circular bone beads.
This piece was just so fun to do. It's crisp, busy, but no nonsense. I really like the mixed messages that it puts out depth wise. At first glance the black and white squares on top of the black look like they are in front of everything, but look long enough and they start to meld back into the stripy white background. Very cool.
Today is one of those days that I'm just so happy that I'm an artist.
