Improv Curves Finish

No masterpiece here, but it was a fun experiment! I played around with the bits I made for a long time.

I decided I liked the pieces backing up to each other to make arches or doorways of sorts.

And this is what I finally ended up with. I don’t hate it. I don’t love it either.

I think what I don’t like here, is that I didn’t do enough editing. I used most every thing I made and it seems too busy. I learn with every project. I’ll leave this up on the wall to see what else I can learn from it.

I have a pile of these scraps left on my table. What shall I try next?

Have a great day!

    I agree with what your friiends have written.
    May be that a sort of a flat round roof make the busy “houses” a balanced building.
    I love it. Go on with this work. Anneke

    “Too busy” was not a thought i had, looking at it. I saw rhythm created by repetition with variation. And pleasing colors.

  3. I really like this one a lot! It has a lot of depth, sort of feels like there are stories within it, and I agree with Judy, has a desert feel. It’s nice to just play around and see what happens, and learn from the process!

  4. Sew the scraps into fabric slabs, then see where it takes you. Might make some cute coasters, a fun case for your sunglasses, sew up dog toys (maybe – maybe not with hand dyed fabric??), pinnie, etc.

    I like it very much. It makes you want to look in those archways or windows. The colors are so Arizona/desert. Perhaps send a picture of it to one of the improv teachers to get their take on your masterpiece. Good job!!
