With a bow to you red-lovers (you know who you are, Sharon!), after Push-up #3 I was ready to move to some colors I was a bit more comfortable with, without defaulting to blue, of course. I saw a cool photo of a weathered, wooden fence that had turned beautiful shades of gray, and along the top edge it was covered with bright green moss. I started with some of those same colors, but extended them into lighter and darker versions. Then I decided to add a complementary color. After looking at the yellow-green hue on Munsell color wheel (see the July 27 post), I decided to add its complement, purple.
I spent the afternoon happily cutting strips and sewing them together until I had a nice stack of pretty stripes. The question is, where do I go from here?
As much as I believe it is good to try to step outside my comfort zone, I won’t pretend that it’s easy. But, I know that’s the only way I’m going to learn and grow (or groan!). If all goes well, I hope to tackle this tomorrow.
