Contemplating the attraction of rust and rusting

  1. What a striking image that is - colours and shapes and that figure so cleverly placed. As so often with your doodles, I wonder what she could be thinking ...

  2. Rust IS attractive indeed! I love that it looks like copper, which was my favourite metal for etching. I like this 'doodle' as you call it - a new piece in the making?

  3. Just after I'd clicked to post my comment above, I noticed your link to Quilt National 15. A fascinating quilt. Many congratulations on being selected.

  4. Thank you Margaret. I am particularly pleased that you are intrigued by what the figure might be thinking.

    Marja-Leena, I'm glad that you like this design. It is most likely destined for stitching as a small silk piece. I have been thinking a great deal recently about why the derelict and decaying are so attractive, and how this is not true as far as the body is concerned!

  7. Karen, thanks. I do wish that I could just pop over to Athens, Ohio to see the show!

    Meta, thank you. I hope to print it onto silk, so that the 'rust' will shine.

  8. This is a very beautiful piece, Olga, both the forms and the colours. And congratulations about Athens - you must be ever so pleased.
