The earlier version of this pattern (see July 7 post)) was about compartments that fracture across the surface. When I add color it reminds me of something Dubuffet might design for fabric. The second version below holds a layer that adds a sense of web-like syncopation that I like. Buried within, rough ladder shapes repeat vertically. Must look up the significance of that. Why ladders?
Playing with a pattern that tries illustrate the process of organization and focus.
You might notice I am getting nowhere.
I thought this might be a good start to fracturing the sense of order instead?
It's a glorious cool day with breezes that define hope for rain. The sky hurts my eyes with its blue. Escaping into patternmaking is an easy way to pursue the muse.
What is it? This is a high contrast graphic I created by scanning in a catalpa leaf and playing with the contrast and color. To my surprise as I zoomed in to the 600 DPI image I found this city scape of interconnected roads and arteries. I need to learn to stitch like this, it is a universal pattern.
I'm an impatient sort -- always looking for the next jolt. That's why this period is frustrating. I can't focus on my work, I can't feel accomplishment doing the mundane chores of life. I am floundering.
Most who know me counsel patience. Not my strong suit.
So now I flounder, flopping with a jittery bend.
