This time I spent one week in a color workshop with David Hornung. We were studying classic color theory, and spent a thoroughly messy week mixing paints, making collages (glue and I should never be in close proximity -- I end up sticking to everything and everything sticks to me) and in general having a wonderful time. And learning a great deal about colors and the undertones of colors that will greatly help me in my work.

|David gave us a picture. Our assignment was to mix the colors we saw in the|
photo and to make a color inventory. We finished with two collages using the CI.
|Last day: free studies. Really really fun!|
I also took "Lines, Curves, Circles and Figure/Ground" with Nancy. Another great class. We finished with this great big piece, which is approximately 90 inches square unsewn.
I decided to be playful and try lots of different things in my piece. Of course, I made this decision after spending a day and a half sewing lines into the lower left corner. Slow slow slow process. And frankly, I was sick of sewing lines. So for the next quarter I made pieced arcs (yes, I know they don't really go together. I was just trying things out), and then tried another liney technique in the upper right. Which quarter do you like the best? Which should I use in the "real" piece?
