Expanding on an idea

In a previous post, I discussed the piece SOMETIMES I GO TO PIECES. I painted a huge amount of canvas strips for that piece, tried to use them on another piece, but it just didn’t make it. I ran across

I’m All Tied Up at the Moment

This piece is the first I developed during my year long project of creating whatever I wished…as long as it fit in the mixed media textile category. I began by choosing a shape…obviously the boat. I cut squares of cotton
