Painting by Deborah Doering
"Painting by Deborah" was the challenge suggested by Ronnie with the following picture to guide us.
Ronnie: I don’t know what inspired this interpretation of Deborah’s painting.
Perhaps it was the lines – or what I perceive to be lines..
Darby's interpretation. She felt that the painting resembled sticks so she worked this one in.
The leno used to place the stick was really tricky so there is only one."
Terry felt the elongated grid was major to the painting as well as the many colors.
The warp is bamboo and the weft is handspun (mine!) wool.
Carol:My first thought when I saw the challenge painting was that it looked like beading. So I dug out my little beading loom, cropped the photo to fit the loom width and charted out the colors.
I had to use what beads I had at home so a few colors are not as accurate as I’d like. But it was fun to do and very relaxing.
Leila: I thought of playing witht the shades in the challenge. White silk, purple cotton and the rest fun synthetics.
Not in the pallet although there are scattered bits of orange through yellow and green! .
Claudia:I was inspired by the colors in the challenge.
The interior of the piece has neatness and order; the outer reaches are frayed, messy and unravelling (aren't we all?)
