Orange You Glad It's Plaid?

"Orange You Glad It's Plaid?"

Well, I thought about what everyone said, dove in feet first, did what seemed right and, voila! It was with some trepidation I turned it in for judging. Well, not only did the piece get juried in, it was also one of the ones that received top juror mention! Wow, the lesson here is to definitely trust myself and my process - and to listen to good advice :).


So, if you are going to PIQF in October, look for the AQuA special exhibit "Singular Sensations" and say "hi" to my piece for me. Thanks, everyone.

Can this Piece be Saved?

I really don't like this piece right now, but am at a loss how to proceed. I'm tempted to just rip it up and walk away from it. I'm working on it for a special exhibit for PIQF and don't have time to start something else. The exhibit is "Singular Sensations" and requires a whole cloth piece. This is all hand painted, screened and stamped. It is 18" by 32". I feel like I've "wasted" the past two weekends working on it. Be brutal. Is it as bad as I think, or should I keep working?
