WEEKLY ART PROJECT #2; ARUM LILY
My elegant Arums usually appear around spring time & I look forward with delight at seeing their flowing lines and graceful forms! We have several clumps of them dotted around the garden, each flowering at different stages. I love them from bud until full flower!
After committing to a design, and rummaging through my fabric stash, I then sat at the machine to sew in the design & then begin the process of cutting back!!
I'm very happy with the lily, the shape & flow of lines & the beads, but am not so happy with the movement of lines in the left hand side of the background. They distract & take focus away from the lily itself. If I were to do this again, I think I would make them more like the right hand side & maybe use different greens...or at least ones that are a bit more interesting!!
