Friend Of Twelve by Twelve - Myth

Hit or Myth
12 by 20
Painted cotton, discharged cotton and commercial and African printed cotton.

Not a fan of this theme and never came up with a good subject.  I was going with Daphne turning into a Laurel tree but then I was going to have to use a realistic head, hand or foot.  I prefer the abstract right now and my head just couldn't get into drawing a foot, head or hand.  It felt wrong.  So the little play on words.  A hit or a miss.  This would be a miss and a myth.  I continue to struggle with the size of these pieces.  12 by 16 would be proportionally more pleasing to the eye.  And I don't think the extra 4 inches at the bottom helps the design here--at all.

Such great fabrics and I love the strips mixed with the yellow circular shapes through out. One of them looks like a lemon. Surely there is a myth about a lemon from some culture. Love the title too -- clever!

you have lots of places where the eye skips - looks like different stories to me, that works
