The Long and Winding Road 16” X 17” The lyric I chose is: The long and winding road that leads to your door… While searching for fabric, I found two partial projects from a Vikki Pignatelli workshop that I tore apart and rearranged the pieces to make this one. I do not think I achieved the collage portion of the challenge but I had fun and experimented with some free motion designs. I also eliminated two UFO’s!! YEA! I am limited with fabric and embellishments as most are packed waiting until we have a more permanent residence. Thank you Julia for a fun, inspiring challenge. Comments and critiques are appreciated. Pam Harris

Love the bright psychedelic colors used and the way the road seems to go over and around hills. Nice...

Jan said what I was going to say!! I also love how your eyes are led right into the center, it's almost like you're going through a tunnel. Very nice :-)

This is such a bright, happy piece. I really like the use of the curves, they are very pleasing to the eye. The addition of the small dark line curves really walks me through the piece. Very nicely done.

I also love the curves and the design.

I really like the piece too. The colors and the black lines work great together. I have to admit, though, I'm baffled by the center. Am I missing something??

The center was to represent the door. I used the plastic tie for some sort of mixed media/collage aspect. I have to admit that right after the picture was taken, the "door" and short path were removed. The road just continues to wind with no end.

Good analogy Pam. Just like our artistic journeys.
