|Art quilt 30"x30" Key To Awareness|
I decided to add a simple black border to this piece. The previous post, Works In Progress, shares the inspiration for it and my thoughts on the subject of true awareness.....(balanced awakening at the level of heart, mind and will!). I like the way this piece turned out and it was fun to mix fused collage work with drawing directly on the fabric. I also like the way the fractured, mosaic-like background (upper) dissolved into a less rigid and more organic free-floating background (lower). This adds to the message that 'becoming aware' is a process that differs greatly from learning. Anyway, I'm already back in the studio working on some new pieces and moving in a completely different direction inspired by Japanese Boro work. We are off to Chicago soon and I wanted to take some hand work to do on the drive so I have put a few pieces together to stitch on. Just wanted to post this finished piece before we leave.
