This week's foot square begins as a horrible piece of decorator fabric from the 1980's.
I monoprinted (fingerpainted) it with some brown paint many years ago and never found a good use for it, so it has been languishing in the scrap drawer for years.
I decided to try giving it some life by coloring some of the spaces with watercolor crayons.
Here's the box, so you can see what I use.
Here it is trimmed to 12" square. Is this interesting? I'm not sure, but I don't really feel that every 12" square has to be a success. Some are going to fail and some are just experiments. I am not putting myself under any added pressure by expecting all of these in this group of 12" squares to be individually successful. What I am really going for here, is a body of work that will be interesting displayed as a grouping. In that context, I think this one is good. It will be a calmer piece to compliment some of the busier ones!
