2019 100 Day Project

Mostly Monochromatic

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:

Green:  leaves/trees
Yellow:  my daily life
Grey:  connections (each white line mirrors another white line)
Purple:  improv pieced curves
Brown:  stripes
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″.


The brown set ($240) and individual orange, sand and yellow pieces ($30) are still available – email me for more specific information.
