just because



I haven't had a 'for fun' project in a while. This one just came about because I had some scraps of paper and I wanted to use them for something - anything. I wasn't quite ready to go to bed yet either. The results are very abstract and geometric. Nature has a lot of geometric shapes, patterns and rhythms so I don't consider this such a stretch from my trees and branches. Right? Abstract work is so much fun. But I've never really explored it as much as I'd like.

Now that I think of it I've had this idea for a while. I have this fantasy of sorts that I'd build great big panels to surround our chimney and cover them with small rectangles like this. The idea probably looks better in my head though. Who knows.





By the way, my two trees sold super quick today (thank you!!) but I managed to make another green one tonight (#8). I'll keep them coming slowly but surely.

I don't think I'll be back tomorrow. Oh wait it already is tomorrow. It's close to 2 am. I am going to pay dearly for this late night tomorrow... I mean today.

Have a great weekend!

  4. marzi - tree bark!! I would've never thought of that. it fits perfectly! thanks.

    yolanda - I agree. I almost added a touch of color they way I do with my other pieces but I just love this white-on-white.

    cara - you CAN make things too! this was only scraps of paper and glue. that's it. super easy to make and very random or creating a pattern whatever you choose. try it!

  5. Hi Patricia - I'm new to this blog and so far I love it. I was curious as to how you frame your pieces since they seem to be a little fatter than 2-D. 2.5D perhaps?

  6. Hi Julie - Welcome!
    My frames are simply store bought frames that are about 1.5" deep.

  7. I would love to see a chimney adorned in this way. I visualize it being somewhat 60's but with current materials.

    Long time lurker speaking up. Love your work Patricia. Simply, sweetly, beautiful.
