I can’t believe it…..I have another work in progress to share. At this point I’m calling it Mosaic but I think I need to work on the title a little. It seems a little uninspired. Sometimes I think naming them is much more challenging than creating them!
It’s about done…..I need to go back into it with more Shiva paint stick to add another layer of glitz on the solid shapes. I love putting a little paint on my quilted pieces, and I’ve found that I usually have to add a couple layers of paint to get the effect I want.
This one is a departure from my Paintbox series….which has been major abstract series for the last several years. Mosaic is a little more “in your face”….not as subtle and blended. I’m not sure yet whether I’ll do another one in this style….but I did enjoy using the gorgeous colors of a collection of hand dyed Cherrywood fabrics I’d purchased several years ago. All the solid shapes are from that collection and what I love about them is that no matter what the color, they always flow so well together. And those muted shades are my absolute favorites.
Here’s a couple more looks….
