A small publicity design in a magazine inspired it, which I re-discovered in an old sketchbook when putting order in my "stuff." Dated Aug. 1997.
For a long time, I was unable to admit the source inspiration; I felt like I had stolen another artist's idea. However, I now see that my piece has taken on a life of its own. Other design ideas have shown up in my journal where I scribble down creative thoughts. Just playing around with the design elements. Lots of possibilities...hmmm, maybe I should finish the first one.
I'm now doing reverse appliqué into it:
1) Series of circles.
The flaming arc on Geraniums from My Garden came from the trimmed striped forms of Pink-Red Minimal. Funny how one thing leads to another.
