Back from the Barn
Barb Seils and I had a wonderful week at Nancy Crow's Timberframe Barn in Ohio (http://www.nancycrow.com/) for her Lines, Circles and Curves class.
Here are a few of the "sketches" (quick compositions) I did from the first assignment to study line and shape.
Our next assignment was to create a composition using Line, and I decided to work on a "spare" structure. I didn't take this design any further, but I think it has possibilities.
Next we practiced cutting and sewing curves and circles, and I accomplished a totally set-in circle --- which I then cut through with more lines.
Our last composition was to start with four "bulls eyes" that would create a finished piece 80 inches by 80 inches. I decided to rearrange the parts of the circles and slash through them. I think this is an interesting start, and there's more slashing to come.
