Joyful. Joyful


My goal was to express "joy". I started with the warm colors, then found that I moved to bright, visual compliments and used circles (bubbles, droplets) which also "seemed" joyful to me. The edge is irregular finished by Terry Grant's method using perle cotton along the edge.
The cream is my design board behind my piece (probably black or grey would be a better background choice). This measures approx: 22" X 11.5".

Thank you for an inspiring challenge. Comments welcome.

I really like your piece. The colors and the design of the circles speaks exuberance to me. There is a lot of movement and the offsetting of the circles within adds to this feeling. I like how the edges are irregular and the simplicity of the finish allows the design to do the talking!
