The EGA is currently offering a Challenge, Thinking like a Painter with Fabric, Threads, and Yarns, with Judith Baker Montano. I really like her work and the Challenge would be a chance to use some of her techniques and ideas to make my own design.
So, I'm really thinking about doing this. I'd do the Challenge with a Twist--for a bit extra fee, I can have her review things before I get too far, followed by a critique at the end.
I need an image with a distinct background, midground and foreground. I've been looking through my photos and I can't decide. I've weeded it down to three and I'm not sure which would be the most interesting and has the strongest design.
All of my choices include either people or houses--some sign of people. Most of Judith's designs do not have people (although some have houses). And I don't take many landscapes--most of my photos are of family and friends or are close ups of details I see.
Please let me know what you think about these photos--can you see any of them as embroideries? Does one stand out to you? Do you think they're all "feh"?
