Circles

Are you getting bored yet? As you see I am not :-). I still have a number of ideas I want to do with my circle theme. For this one the inspiration came from a piece of gauze I bought quite some time ago at JoAnn's. I liked it when I saw it, but had no specific plans when I picked it up. It was lingering in my stash waiting for the right moment.
For this circle quilt I played with the idea of transparency. The circles are gauze and therefore partly transparent, not where the foil is. The black strips are made from 2 layers of black lutrador, slightly transparent. Everything is stitched onto a snow dyed piece of fabric.


The only problem I am having with my circle quilts, is that I am running out of ideas for titles. No clue what to call this one. Maybe I should start numbering them. It is not very creative, but could be a solution.
I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday. Check out the link to see what other artists have done this week.

Love it!! I love the relationship of circles and rectangles.

Beautiful! I love the play with the bright colored circles on the gauze and the dark almost transparent lines. Great idea and execution!

Naming is almost always difficult for me. As a viewer I feel let down when I walk to the card by a painting (or other art) and see something like "green circle on red square" for a title. But as a creator when I don't want any representational impact or emotional distortion, I don't want to name more specifically--thus the idea of "Circle Number X" makes sense.
