an older piece that is one of my absolute favorites, inspired by ee cummings

 

spring's million(who

(these words above came first & inspired the piece. line of the poem written across the center of the painting)

 

week one assignment for my get your paint on class.

 

i've had a gee's bend postcard hanging above my studio desk forever, always meaning to do a gee's bend painting, so happy that i finally have the opportunity to really sit down and do it!

 

this was a challenging painting to work on, much more so than i thought it would be! it felt like a very different way of working for me- using something other than my own idea as the starting point... but it was great! (it definitely went though and "ugly phase!")

 

i based my piece on a few different quilts, pulling ideas, colors and patterns from each one together. i worked first in my sketchbook, then just dove on in. i forced myself to use only "scraps" of collage materials i found discarded on my desk and tried not to worry about things looking "neat". (i used my book Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt as reference)

 

the final painting seems new and different compared to how i usually work, and that was my goal!

 

acrylic/mixed media/collage on board. 8x8"

 

a super first assignment! : )
