Trying to Work it Out

Things don't always go as I had planned. Just so I can be faithful to the process, I am showing you just a few of the permutations this has gone through, none of which make me happy. I should have known better, since it was a gray day all day yesterday.

Each of the changes, which may appear small to you, required several trips up and down the ladder.












This last one is the way I left it...discouraged.

However, since I had this problem to figure out, I spent my sleeping time working on it. I have decided that I don't like the rough cut pieces and I sure don't like the way I was trying to do it.
So, I think I will get out the white fabric, paint another three or four yards of different turquoises, and then go back to my original design idea of a cruciform in larger squares.

Today the sun is shinning. I have to take my dad to the doctor this afternoon for an eye procedure and then maybe I will stop by the studio and take these things down so I don't have to look at them any more. And then, tomorrow I can start painting.

It is very difficult to work LARGE when you are not used to it. You will get there with a fabulous design - I know you will.

what do you think about some thin shape of the turquoise somewhere in the lower left that connects with the central line...but along with Gerrie, I'll be looking forward to seeing how you work this out!

I know what you mean about the turquoise things - but I am sure you can figure out something that will work better for you.
