I have always loved Kandinsky's painting 'Farbstudie Quadrate' so I thought I'd try my own color study using squares.
This last weekend I was really suffering with of all things, a bad case of pink eye. I was so bored and decided that I could at least still paint. I cut 12 12" squares of PFD fabric and used Stewart Gill paints to paint each one. I tried to keep the painting loose and tried to experiment with different color combinations. With the pink eye slowing me down, it took 3 days to paint all of the squares.
Tuesday with the pink eye feeling better but still running a fever, I found out I had an ear infection. I was scheduled to go to Singapore today but had to cancel because of my ear...why do I feel like I should be in grade school??? I am finally feeling better and did manage to piece the squares together. This piece still needs work. Tomorrow I may adjust some of the colors and I am thinking of trying some metalics and/or Alchemy which is an interference shimmer glaze paint.
I have also though a bit about the quilting. I plan on using lots of different colors of Isacord thread and I was also thinking of doing some hand stitching with embroidery thread. I am not thrilled with this right now but I think the quilting will add a lot so stay tuned.
