Good Morning from Amarillo TX, almost home,
Here is today's piece. It is a counterpoint to yesterday's piece. I started with a black background set on top of a bright blue batting piece. The bars of color are from the same selection as yesterday's piece but this time they are stitched down with black thread and the background is heavily stitched with a minute stipple to push it back. The colors pop off of the black so much more than they did with the white and the piece is richer as a whole. The asymmetric placement of the colorful bars is more interesting and the edge where the color and the black meet makes for some dynamic movement. All in all, I find the piece more interesting than yesterday's work.
Well, we're trying to get home by mid afternoon so we can have a little rest and a clean-up before series class tonight at the studio,
