I took a couple of weeks off from the embroidery/ blocks swapping action. It helped me to clear my mind. I now feel refreshed, and willing to find inspiration in my partners' requests.
These blocks are for Megan (boutiquenutmegdesigns.) She asked for:
-lines only no curves please
-I would like 1 of the prints per block
-No raw edges please
-I would like each of the blocks to have some of the charcoal and some of the lime green in them
Everything else is up to you!
This is block number one. I had such a good time with it, I hope she likes it. Block number two was a total revelation. While working on block number one Mark Rothko's paintings came to my mind. I guess it was the warm colors, and the request itself which gave me room to be creative.
These would be more like a corner of bigger "Rothko interpretation" of his orange framed paintings. I find it quite amusing how these kind of blocks, the so called 'improv blocks' can be reminiscent of Abstract Expressionist movement, moreover when the blocks are mainly made with solids like these ones.
