choppy or distracting, but I still wanted to incorporate some abstractness.
In my original sketches I played around with the idea of a composition within the composition. I wasn't sure if I was really going to make that work, but I just love the postcard sized cutout in the blue house where I've played with the scale by adding a tiny tree on the horizon.
This is all fused down and just waiting for the next steps. That will probably mean fusing some additional small details: windows, grassy/leafy/flowery shapes, and pathways maybe. Then I'll start the embroidery. But for now, it's just simmering.
