Yesterday's Art, for Saturday, August 24, 2013
Here is a piece that I made mostly yesterday. I added the two swirls this morning because it was too damned boring. The piece began with the blue green fabric that I mono printed using the bottom of aplastic beaker with a hexagon shape. I layered it on top of a dark red orange which is on top of a greener, blue green batting. I laid the orange strip down just below the diagonal half way mark and stitched it down with the darker red orange thread in a jillion little circles. The hexagon fabric was stitched in matching thread along the edge of each hexagon. I twisted up a strip of the darker red orange fabric and top stitched it down the orange bar of fabric in a gentle curve.
As I said, I added the two dark red orange swirls this morning and they are adding a lot of much needed interest. It's strange, but this one looks a lot better in person, in fact I really like it in person, but not so much in this photo. I really like the direct complement, it's bold yet well managed with it's lack of pure hues.
I'll be right back,
