Today I am showing you a few scenes that caught my eye because of "line"
The chair above made me think of quarter square triangle quilt blocks.
There is a bit of glare on this chest, a reproduction of one brought across the ocean from England. If you enlarge the image you'll see some fancy stitching ideas for quilting.
Or zentangles, or carving, or pottery, or weaving.
The point is, line is important to just about every art form. Think of ballet... the line of a dancer's leg or arm.
Line is important in music, an auditory line one can follow to enjoy music.
I am particularly partial to the following image. The floors in Plimoth (that's how they spelled it) were dirt floors. Survival was the desire in the beginning.
This is what is left of Plymouth Rock... it's been chipped, and relocated, and returned, etc.
She said she would love to see any art I make using those lines...
well, it's not that simple. All inspiration goes into the "Inspiration Soup" that I use to make, to write, to live a creative life. Right?
Like sections of a quilt, broken by borders, and curvy quilting lines. It's important to design to consider "line"
NO ONE is putting details like this into buildings now. We need to protect the ones from the past.
This was in the following home. The couple designed it themselves, and the husband passed away quite young shortly after they moved in. The wife never remarried, and soon sold the home.
Ah, so much inspiration for us as designers and artists. I'm sure some of the wealthy home builders left design to the professionals but this couple gave much imput into the design.
Do you consider "line" when you make art?
