Here is the latest in my Shapes of Life series. It's called "A Day in the Life" because it contains so many elements that butt up against each other, sometimes smoothly, sometimes not so smoothly, just like pretty much every day of my life.
There is a lot of stitching in this piece and a lot of drawing in ink too. Although not as apparent in photographs, the difference between the two mediums provides a lot of texture in this work.
It could be a patchwork quilt, or a bark painting, or a doodle page in a sketchbook. It's any and all of these things.
The muted palette allows pattern and texture to predominate.
The geometry is sometimes straight, sometimes bent and skewed, just like life.
Let me know if this speaks to you.
