My piece for Terri Karls is finished. The interior monologues I have with her while doing this have ranged from frustration to gratitude. This exercise was truly a fun one and worth the emotional turmoil to be stretched outside of my safe zone. Terri's chosen artist is Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 - 2000), an Austrian who eventually moved to New Zealand. From the Eycyclopedia Britannica: He incorporated bright, contrasting colours, elaborate ornamentation, asymmetrical, organic forms, and natural vegetation in both his artwork and his buildings." This piece is 19" x 19" and part of the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild's Modern Art Challenge, Summer 2012. Ok, going back into my safe zone now!
Here's the picture Terri gave me - the quality is not terrific (my fault). Just ramp up all the colors, and you have a pretty good picture for your mind!
