ABOUT THE ART

This design came from an inspiration of a piece of art my Mom created in the 1950s. She and my Dad lived in Germany, and had very little money just out of school. So Mom would take string and pin it down onto scrap fabric, add other scrap fabric for the blocks of color and keep changing it when they needed new art. My piece Donna's Autumn Woodcut was inspired from her work in woodcuts, and she asked for a piece that would coordinate with it. Using the same colors, I came up with an updated version of her 1950s string piece. When I looked at her lines, they reminded me of dancing people with large fancy hats on, hence the title.
