I tried to think abstractly, and failed yet again (my mind just doesn't work that way). I copied several abstract pictures from the net and took only those to my studio for ideas. I went through my scraps of hand-dyed fabrics, finding the three here. The grass one is colored with crayons by rubbing, which I thought would work for abstract. But then I found the scrap with the three bison and thread-painted them to give them some color. And of course it became too realistic to be abstract. In Russell fashion, I added clouds of dust by using wool roving and hand needle-felting it in place. A tiny scrap of gold became the lightening that caused the stampede.
Thank you for this fun Fast Friday project.
