After stitching 21 five inch squares, I've decided to end this series. It was a nice diversion but now, I'm ready to go back to painting.
Here's the piece I made today. I used fluid acrylic and three different stencils to get a layered effect.
Somehow, many of my paintings look like wallpaper. I guess I like an overall design even though critics would say "Where's the focal point?" Maybe it's because I cut my artistic teeth using fabric where 99% of commercial fabrics do not have a focal point because the pattern is repeated to make the yardage.
Now that I look at this piece, I think it would make a wonderful design for fabric. Do you agree?
