yeah.... variation b rocks... love the balance of bright color, just enough. Beautiful.
And as I look again, the additional sewing, creating texture is really wonderful. Great texture and rhythm.
valerianna...the stitching was there, but the lighting changesso...i turned on the light andit emphasized the kantha. thankyou for stopping by and i LOVEyour Solstice...the Clay Womanis extraordinary!
atta girl!in each piece i make i am solving a problem. my friend asked me onetime as i sat with a tapestry in my lap why i'd use a color/shape i hate. he's a painter. i couldn't believe he didn't know that to get someplace you have to solve design problems. you have to see where the "ugly" color takes you. same idea here. if you ask a question, then push it further. i am a fan of mistakes.
Jolt- zig zag of color against the stormy blues, and the radiance of the sunflower, sun, storm, lightning. Storm here too last night, unusual in that lightning zig zagged all over but the thunder took a long time in coming and then did so the same time as the heavy rain fell. Strength in this design that tells me a story of storm night in the desert sky of the southwest.Marti
just keep working it out. you develop thinking muscle that way. playing with the lighting is really enLIGHTening...it is another component...
Ahh-your texture is playing withthe light. Maybe you're catching theenvironment's lush feeling with thenew moisture but something wonderfulis growing here.
wow. It is popping right out of itself...like the garden after the sky rain!
wowww... i know you say it's the lighting, but looks like everything is going to come alive and fly away! beautiful grace... looks like a cloth diorama...looks like it feels good in the hands...
suzanna and michele...well, thebutterflies aren't stitched downyet, so they ARE popping out, orjust on the surface. i am takingsome deep breaths before i invisible baste them.
Jude...thinking muscle. yes.and the lighting "accidents" AREinformative...they add magic sometimes and using my thinking muscle i realize that i can tryto capture that "illusion" andstitch it in???? maybe???
