Kathy's solid swap



In the beginning, I made a pretty straight forward interpretation of the painting,
 but I wasn't happy with it.  This is part of the cannibalized  first effort.




Then I made this.... still not what I wanted



I decided that I really wanted an abstract... out of the box representation..
 so I came up with this... I call it Fragments of Matisse, or Views from a window.
It was hand pieced, hand quilted and sent to Laura.


Hope she likes it!

Kathy

It really gives a feeling of windows in a most original piece. Your colors really work!

I like the way you used the painting to produce something that was different. Very effective and a beautiful piece.
