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.
