When I understood the 'sense' and intent of the challenge word 'Color'... is was easy. I had this piece of fabric that had been nagging me for sometime. In fact, it just kept saying 'Pick me, pick me'... it wanted to be in everything!
So, just finishing a study of the Masters and Cubist Style art.. I knew what I was going to do.
Here is my Poppy-licious... done in Cubist Style [early 20th century] in all their glory. To me they look 'Happy'.
I actually used the background of a UFO...I liked the way the black and white added punch and helped move the eye. The off-kilter border adds tension and further interest.
I did a LOT of thread work and hand stitched the French Knots.
I truly enjoyed this challenge!
