Making Parts

I've been busy making parts. Some of my fused fabrics here, waiting to be sliced up and formed into interesting mini compositions, for later use in larger works.
I put them together with other groups of analogous colors and see what it happens. I enjoy making the little bits, and keep thinking I need more and more, of other colors or other values.

 I thought I was close with this arrangement, but then I changed my mind. I need more...something.

 I fused a lot of blues and purples and figured they would work together, and finally found a nice layout, rearranged it,  cropped it and called it done. But...I was still unthrilled. The great thing about fusing is that I can still take this stuff apart and reuse it, by peeling it apart. No seams.

 Green and yellow, and then yellow and red are pretty hot and exciting so I have been making those, and still have pink and orange to use.

 I believe this exercise will end up as several works.


  1. All beautiful combinations but my favourite here is the blue/purple.

  2. This makes so much sense! It's like classical music with theme and variations, ready to be fused into a symphony. 😉👏🏼

  3. I really appreciate your generosity in telling us your thought process and showing your work process. Thanks. Julie
