If you know me you know how much I dislike enforced themes and deadlines!
This piece is to fit in a show called Pentimento way over there in BC.
In my mind it is not me at all...completely out of character.
No story of the natural world around me
just a collection of techniques trying to demonstrate layers.
I have called it "Under Construction".
It looks like a building site doesn't it!
Snippets of colour were caught under a sheer scarf.
Then layers of grids in various proportions were couched and stitched on top.
And a woven sample from years back offered another form of grid
to complete the piece.
Talking of things hidden under layers....
Do you see my rusty guardian of the strawberry patch
hiding beyond the poppies.
He might keep the birds away
but the chipmunks have no fear.
They snatch about half the strawberries from right under the guardian's nose!
