Floating

Fast Friday Fabric Challenge 59

The topic of this month challenge is "to create a piece of fiber art that demonstrates solitude in a representational abstract model." When I think of solitude my favorite place to be alone, is on a raft floating preferably in the ocean or any other body of water. The same solitude can be found in a swimming pool.. Close your eyes and imagine:)



Size 25" by 28" 100% cotton fabric, loosely spun hand dyed yarn

This piece has beautiful colors and textures, and portrays the idea of water very well. I'm curious if the yarn was added to represent something specifically?

Not really - being a hopeful abstract - I was thinking in terms of sea weed washing upon the floats/ the rhythm of the ocean.

Really nice. I see it as a view of lily pads from above. Your quilting adds to the watery feel of the image.

I see the yarn as the path of the float on the water. Wonderful water representation with color and quilting.

Lovely composition and color palette. You have captured the feeling of water. The yarn accents are quite effective-they remind me of the vegetation in the lake.

Such delicate, soft colors. The yarn really looks like sea grasses drifting with the tide. Wonderful depiction of solitude.

Susan, So creative. Gentle and soothing, as one feels floating in water, especially in Laguna. Sandi Cannarella
