slow design

Before I run out the door to NY I wanted to update you on what I've been doing with this mess from last night. Here's where I was when I posted in the wee hours this morning.


And here are the permutations I've played with, using "what if?" in the past little while. I take pictures as I go along so I can remember what to go back to later after a million more "what ifs." At first, ad hoc design. Now, working with slow design. Very slow.

I was liking #2 until I got to #3, now I like it best! Looks like 'windows akimbo'!

I don't care for the solid yellow strip all the way across down near the bottom. My eye goes there first.

Hi, Rayna. Cool piece. I like the contrast of lights and darks. Nice depth.
And a happy holiday season and new year to you!
best, nadia

I also recently got your book and posted about it. I was very inspired and I'm trying out your methods.
I put together another piece today and laid it on my wall. I can see that the slow design will be the most difficult part.
I love the colors and the 'windows' in your piece.
