Yellow/Gray Composition 2014 Cindy Grisdela

I was in my studio last week working on some new compositions, and I need some advice. Do you like the yellow and gray design or the orange and gray one?

These are likely to turn into pillows, but I think the idea might be interesting enough for a series of wall hangings. What do you think? Maybe different colors would work too?

Of course, these don’t have any texture yet because they haven’t been quilted–maybe it’s hard to tell what they could be. I could use straight horizontal or vertical lines, wavy lines, or add some dense ¬†swirls to complement the straight lines of the design.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

I have a busy show season the next few months; mark your calendars:

October 31-November 2, 2014 – Washington Craft Show. Located at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Hours are 10-8 Friday, 10-6 Saturday and 11-5 Sunday. I’ll be in Booth 517. Admission $15.
