Art Every Day, Monday, July 8, 2013,
Here is today's new piece. I was jonesing to play with direct complements and thought I use one of my least favorite pairs, blue and orange.
I laid several different blues down on some orange dye painted batting and quilted the hell out of them with concentric, linked squares and rectangles. Then I added the long strips of orange and the three squares. I stitched them along their edges then stitched rows of circles inside each strip and one circle inside each of the squares.
I like the piece well enough. It's got good depth and a nice flow of line but it lacks some vital energy. I wish that I had made all of the orange bits just a little larger so that they were bossing about the blue rather than just sitting there on it.
Well, I'm off to get new license plates for the car then on to Golden to teach advanced design.
