I was going to submit an art quilt to Quilting Arts' Text Me challenge. I wasn't satisfied with it so I didn't submit it. First, I had trouble with this gal.
I wanted her to look
somewhat like a young princess.
Instead she looked much older and very hard.
I was actually afraid of her.
I got the distinct impression
that she'd like to kick my butt!
In an effort to avoid a black eye, I quickly
chopped the sides of her eyes off,
lightened and lengthened her hair,
and thinned her face out.
I like her much better now.
I made the text way too big.
It overwhelms the piece.
Onward and upward.
Live and learn and all that jazz.
