Here is today's new piece - and no, it is not on it's side. I designed it to have the writing on it's side. This is my favorite quote. It's on the top of my blog page and it's what I say to myself when I feel like I'm loosing my way or have lost my focus. This time we call life can be very difficult and it is easy to loose our focus. This quote helps me reconnect with my focus when I'm feeling lost.
Anyway, it's rather simple, but it packs a wallop. Red violet and yellow green stitching - I just love that complementary pair, all on a white ground that sits on a black ground. The writing was meant to be the focal point - being sideways helps with that - and the square is the counterpoint. The stitching in the background was meant to compete just a bit with the focal/counter points but not so much as to overwhelm them. To quote my friend John again, " my eyes enjoy looking at it" and my heart enjoys reading it.
I'm off to play with color at the studio,
