“An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” -Oscar Wilde
My 12x12 group had the challenge theme- 'Abstraction'. I really struggle with creating abstract art and this piece was a struggle throughout. I never quite got into it or as the quote says above- it never became 'dangerous'. I completed the exercise, but still am not happy with the finished piece, even considered disposing of it.An interesting struggle was when I begun hand embroidering circles haphazardly on the top but it looked AWFUL! I had marked the circles on the fabric with a Pilot Frixion pen (draw with the pen, iron it and it disappears); I love these pens but when you iron it, it takes a little color with it. To make lemonade out of my lemons, I made circles ALL OVER the piece, ironed it and made it a design element!
I am hoping my next one is more inspiring!
