Art Every Day, One for August 20, 2013,
Here is the third one I did today in an effort to get caught back up. I wanted to play with twisted strips of fabric but without using them as swirls. My friend I.V. made a colograph plate last week with a sun that looked a bit like this one. Mine however is a bit more abstract than hers. I got the inspiration from the background fabric. It had this great portion in the upper corner that was orange which I thought would be a great place to start a quarter sun. So I ripped some golden fabric and jumped in.
After I stitched down the sun and it's rays I did some echo quilting between the rays and that's about it. I like the piece, but I'm not all that pleased with the positioning of the rays or something, it just doesn't turn me on the way I thought it might. I miss the swirls.
Well that's all I've got in me today. I'll try to do some more catching up tomorrow.
