And here is how mine ended up looking at the end of all the rounds. It's very freeing and fun to do these exercises with CQFA, there's not a lot of pressure because it's not meant to become anything, although sometimes it does. It's all about the improvisation and the just-do-it experimentation.
So here was Jen's starter piece that was inspired by Juxtapose. I was the first to work on it using the word Motion.
Here's how it ended up after all the rounds.
This is how it ended up after all the rounds. I added the green polka dot and the blues for the word Symbolize, meant to symbolize ground and water features.Fragments, this piece came to me already looking like a house, so I added on what fragments of ancient cultures might have been built over.
I added the pieced border on the bottom for the word Geometric.
One of the best parts was the piece of paper that went around with your piece that everyone wrote on explaining what they did and why for each round. Fun to get a glimpse into other artists' thought processes. I glue-sticked in bits of the fabrics that I used in my starter piece.
Thanks for walking us through this fun round robin Maureen!
