Art Every Day, Saturday, April 6, 2013
For all it's worth, here is today's new piece. Though I do believe that practicing creativity every day is a good idea, I think that doing it when you're in a negative space will always show.
I really didn't have the desire to make a piece this afternoon (I've got to get back into making these babies in the early morning before the world gets in the way!) so I just grabbed a group of hand painted fabrics and threw the whole thing together then spent the next 30 minutes fighting with metallic thread - I stand by my opinion that none of it works well when free motioning. So I just sort of gave up and quilted the foregrounds of each of the black pieces very minimally. I switched to a cotton thread, breathed a sigh of relief and stitched the hell out of the negative space and called it a day.
Wish I could offer you more, but that's all I've got.
