.....you know those odd scraps, the ones that are leftover from another project. or many projects. the strange shapes with cutouts that are close to becoming only strings. many times when cleaning out my collection, these are the ones i might discard or at least cut into regular shapes. but i have been noticing that sometimes i can remember, vaguely, how they got their shapes. i remember cutting them over and over and where their missing pieces found a home. since many were gifted even you might remember. ha!
.....the fragment concept is a big part of coma.
.... i am keeping with the common ground concept, working with similar colors, breaking larger areas into pieces so that if you look closer the solid field seems shattered by a confusion of floating bits and pieces (odd shaped dots) . spring cleaning, confusion and quilting combined.
whenever i arrange collections of things i think of helle over at gooseflesh. she is an amazing artist who works brilliantly with things she has found and collected. i love her new prints. she is very quietly focused. and fabulous.
