Art Every Day, Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Well, as much as I loved yesterday's piece, I'm not in love with today's. I do like the painted fabric and it's bold lines and colors, and I like the angled strips of fabric too. But I took a big ol' risk with my choices in the black negative space. I should have left well enough alone and just stitched it with a small stipple in black thread, but I want to push the limits so, I added more straight lines and a contrasting thread color; blue green.
Now, I'm left with three areas of interest and no place for the eye to rest. The best I can say is that the three planes of depth are interesting, but unfortunately it's just too much.
Live and learn, till tomorrow,
