TIF

This month theme is:


So this month the idea to think about is stories that are and stories that are possible.


Challenging as always... Even more challenging because I did not have much time for TIF this month. I even considered skipping that month altogether... but felt "guilty". So yesterday, TIF has been my afternoon task.
In the weeks before, I kept thinking of stories like paths that interlace. Kind of metro map. Hence the painted background. By luck, I kept a metro map from my weekend in Madrid, and I could use torn pieces of it. It is was I get yesterday, before and after stitching.


Stitched and reframed.
Now, I'd like to print some tags to add, such as "What if?" or "Which side?", etc. Hope I will be able to finish it before the end of month.

Anyway:

  • I 'm glad to have spent time on it. I guess it is what this challenge is for...
  • I confirm I'm not comfortable with collage or mix-media not involving fabrics,
  • that won't be my best piece ever, I rather consider it as an experiment or an exercise.
I wish you all a very good week. Mine will be quite busy, with work, training for work, training for the show on Sunday and the usual chores.

Interesting experiment. It's always worth experimenting. You never know what ideas it may lead to for future work. Have a good, though busy, week! Thinking of you.

Ups meine Liebe, das sind ja abenteuerliche Experimente, das grenzt ja schon an perfekten Dadaismus!!! Aber ich kann mir schon vorstellen, daß es Spaß macht, sich mit einer Arbeit einfach mal treiben zu lassen und spontan zu werkeln.
Ich wünsche Dir ein wunderschönes Wochenende Wurzerl
