Starting a New Project – Abstracted
For a change of pace I’m going to share some of the photos that I looked at when starting this project. The finished piece will be 18″x45″ so the shape of the piece will be a challenge in itself.
This piece will be an entry into a FAN (Fibre Art Network) exhibition in 2013 entitled Abstracted. This show requires artists to work with a partner, one artist develops a representative art piece and the other develops an abstract/non-representative art piece using a common subject. The pieces will be developed collaboratively and will be hung side-by-side. I’m partnering with Judi MacLeod from Victoria and we have not yet met in person.
This one lends itself to texture….
This one has mood …..
Loved the colors in this one ….
Once again great texture possibilities ….
This shape lends itself to the required composition….
Because we live on two sides of the Rocky Mountains, I looked for pictures that would incorporate the mountains…..
Because I love skies I looked at this one…..
I realized as I worked through my photos that I am drawn to landscapes but this collaborative work presents more challenges. So I looked at some that provided a closer perspective.
Judi shared a number of her photos as well. In the end we independently selected a photo of the same kind of Lichen from our collections and the one above, from my collection, was the one we selected for this project.
