to continue on with my small quilts from the past year: I had an art attack one day this past spring. What would minimal imagery look like with a focal point of high texture? The result was these two pieces, both 11 in. x 14 in. (not including the frame)
These are mostly batik fabrics. I wasn't as happy as I thought I would be. But I've had some lovely comments on these two.
Gull Play worked better for me as far as the texture and the stark imagery of the birds. I intended for focal point imagery to be a simple line drawing. On looking closer you find a lovely little surprise of texture created by thread, beads, stone, etc.
