I think I'm done

Yes, yes, I know, "less is more". However, sometimes applying the axiom takes more discipline than (apparently) I have. I get overwhelmed with "oh, wow, this is cool" and away I go....over the top.

Compare this post with the last. And, candidly, tell me. I'll be brave. At least I'll know what readers think....won't change a thing though. I'm going to submit this to the exhibit in Japan.

I am sending both of my inspirations: View from Vincent's Window ( the "can this woman be stopped category"....I now also think needs rick-rack) along with this one titled Sunflower Abstract. Let them choose.


  1. I do like this one better than the first. It feels more finished and balanced. Quite lovely!

  2. I agree with Connie. I couldn't figure out what you had done, at first.

  3. Sometimes 'more is more' works well, as in the case of the rickrack use here!

  4. Visually arresting -- a perfect example of "more is better."


  5. I'll be honest that I'm not that much into rickrack personally. But I like the 2nd one better. I think the additional rickrack is an improvement. For one, it ties the whole design together from the central flowers outward. And secondly - more importantly - it is authentically DIANE. Your artistic voice is definitely coming through more in the 2nd one. Great work!
