New Work for Art Gallery
I have explored this style before and am having fun with these smaller pieces (aprox. 15 x 18 ). I have had my work displayed for sale at the Old Church Gallery in Cedar River MI near Menominee where I live. I struggle with randomly making things that I hope people will purchase but I decided to stay smaller and have fun. I have four pieces in various gradations of colorful batiks. I have two hairstyles and my mind is spinning with other hairstyles like punker girl or retro flapper or afro disco chick!! I may use neutrals or pastels but I want to stay with the brights because that's what I gravitate towards. They are ready to quilt, bind and embellish. I like this technique because I like the contrast of straight and curved lines, contrast in color and the fun of the hairstyles choices.

Really cool!! I think the brights are awesome, too. The blue on is my favorite, though for hairstyle. I would wear that one!ReplyDelete
