verbs

here's another quilt square I've been working on
it was slow going and I'm ready to call it "done"
I don't usually work in black and white - so it was a bit of a struggle



I'm calling it "verbs" because of it's other theme
I was well into selecting words out of book text
when I realized all of the words I was choosing were verbs



verbs - those wonderfully alive words that describe the intent and purpose and the world of the doer



for the black and white pictures in the center, I used my new Polaroid PoGo printer
one word for that
(this time an adjective)
F U N !

... more to come regarding the PoGo ....

Wow Kimmie! That is certainly a unique and wonderful piece. I don't think I've seen one done in black and white before. Just beautiful. And I like the way you have described verbs ... intent and purpose. Fabulous! Hope your weekend is great. Tammy

Another great piece Kimmy. Can't wait to hear more about your PoGo, I've never heard of it. I'd also love to hear how you printed your background fabric, so neat!

Wonderful. Love the blacks with the muted faded colour on top. It has a very special feel to it. The words speak for themselves and lend an peaceful context to the whole.

Marvelous! Except I sure wouldn't call it black and white!
You have really found yourself in your art expression :)
