New life for old paintings

Today I put together some squares cut from old paintings and adhered to ten-inch-square cradled boards. These seem to work better than the original paintings; the patterns working off of each other have just enough complexity to intrigue but not overwhelm visually.

I love this quilting concept. I do myself. Really there is a synergy acheived in this process.

Thank you, Lynn -- Absolutely true about synergy going on. Plus working this way solves the problem of what to do with pieces that are OK but not really "making it." You hate to throw them out, but you can't save everything. This way, they get a new lease on life.
