The She Series #3 and #5

The She Series continues. The first one is #3 (16"x23")that I finally got a good picture of today. I really like the colors, shape and strength of this one. I like how what I see as the arms reach from edge to edge.

Finishing up #5 today, it just needs binding but I've taken a picture anyway. This is the first time I've taken photos of my pieces outside on an overcast day. This is supposed to give you the best light. I'm not sure if I agree or not. Anyway, I wasn't crazy about the colors of #5 when I was putting it together, but now I really like it.

I've totally enjoyed making these small pieces. The final one, #5 is 24"x35", not so small. I've developed an easy binding method that only requires one sewn seam, the rest is glued (don't tell anybody), its not quilt-like to glue. Shhhhhhh!

I'm pretty proud of myself for getting these done. Yeah for me!!

Now I think I'll get back to my Italian apartment view that's been hanging on the design wall for about 5 months, way too long.

Both these pieces are wonderful! The abstract figures are evocative of experience and depth. Well done! They make me want to see more.
