A couple days back, Els said she was interested in seeing how I got to abstraction, because she generally failed on the side of realism. And as yesterday's post showed, so did I on that piece.
(You should totally click on that link, because she just finished an amazing felt book, and is working now what looks to be a crown with a story.)
On this one, I thought I had some good abstract stuff going down, and then the river went in, and it feels like I could, with a little effort, pinpoint this valley on the globe. Which, I hasten to add, would be tricky because really I was working hard to keep it simple and not representational at all!
I can try again, maybe smaller. But first I have to finish this one.
