After making many works in black and white recently, I decided to revisit color for my 2019 100 Day Project. Called Mostly Monochromatic, my rules were one color for nine days with a second contrasting color allowed, but not required.
I had two longer trips during this time period so I suspended the project while I was away. The project began on January 20, 2019 and ended on May 18, 2019.
At the beginning of the project, my plan was just to make whatever I wanted as long as it was the right size and color. I discovered pretty quickly that I did not enjoy working that way, so I added themes for each color. The themes are as follows:
Yellow: my daily life
Grey: connections (each white line mirrors another white line)
Purple: improv pieced curves
Blue: variety (more than one shape in each piece)
Pink: Hopes for Humanity
Orange: scribbles (looking for freedom, not frenzy)
White: just stitching (no piecing or appliqué)
The final piece is pennant flags of the colors I used in the project.
Each piece is 6″ x 6″.
These pieces are available as groups of nine or individually – check my shop for what is available!
