New Hooked Wool Drawings

2014 #14, hand dyed wool and egg tempera on linen, 19 x 20 in.

I was thinking "lines" while working on the studies for these new hooked wool drawings, so the only thing hooked in wool on these pieces are the lines. In #14, two painted shapes––yellow and blue––hold lines––blue and yellow––while an open rectangle can't quite contain the curved red line.

2014 #15,  hand dyed wool and egg tempera on linen, 15 x 12 in.

Four lines of various warm hues cross a painted and unpainted surface.

2014 #16,  hand dyed wool and egg tempera on linen, 3 panels each 15 x 6 in. 

A triptych of simple design: lines running across the three panels delineate rectangles of color and of bare linen; lines move within them. A centered horizontal line is accompanied by lines, curved and straight, leading toward it. I enjoyed the challenge of simplicity with these three drawings.
