It’s not that I abhor a vacuum but somehow the urge to play with pattern takes over.
This vertical piece replaces the left hand white area of the pin board that I contemplated leaving blank in the last post.
I filled in the right side’s white stripe as well. But I’ve adjusted roof heights and inserted ecru to try and keep things lively.
Meanwhile, it was primary day here in Massachusetts, school started, and I watched quite a few hours of the Kavanaugh hearings. Maybe that’s why I have a headache (or is it the heat?)
PS even though copying myself doesn’t generally work for some reason, I might map out that vertical pieced section and make another version of it so it can stand alone.
PPS. Sorry I haven’t been reading blogs much or if I’m reading, not commenting. Still staying focused here. Submitted a chapter to a literary magazine contest with Dec 15 results. Probably will serve to add to my rejection pile but it felt good to hit send today. By a weird coincidence the judge is Colum McCann, whom I wrote about last week in a post about imitating writers I admire.
