Arting for 365 Day 306: Stitched Landscape

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

I was really hoping to get the painting I was working on finished for today’s post. Turns out that was a pipe dream. Instead I completed a smaller piece yesterday.

Not wanting to tear up nice, new big sheets of paper, I found a bunch scraps and stitched them together, then proceeded to draw a very simple design. I didn’t think I’d like this piece as much as I do. Something about the softness of the paper, the simple lines and the way the work is physically bound together while maintaining individual parts pleases me.

One thought on “Arting for 365 Day 306: Stitched Landscape

  1. What an appealing – and clever – piece. I love how the image formality opposes the rougher stitching. And it’s a smart use of paper in an unexpected way.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
