Pattern, color, rhythm

I enjoy repeat patterns - a challenge to design and a fun to discover variations on a theme. Perhaps I like them for the same reasons I enjoy traditional Irish music, Mozart,and the Delta Blues. Visual rhythms, process rhythms, keeping time, leaving space for imagination, practice for my hands. I've washed the rice paste from the cotton/linen blend, decorated with Meadow Rue and Tulip designs. Below are photos of results. Each piece is approx. 24x62."
