Eggplant ala Albers

I had so much fun with the eggplant theme for our Twelve X Twelve theme that I could not stop at one. I made 5. They are all silk. I love the color studies done by Josef Albers and decided it would be fun to use the square in a square composition.

I have a disclaimer. The colors are not very truein most of these pieces. The reds in pieces 2, 3 and 4 are not as red as they appear in the photos. I am going to try to photograph them again in natural light.

I need help deciding which one should become part of the Twelve X Twelve colorplay mosaic. So, I am asking for your help.

Now, go on over to the Twelve Blog and see what every one has done.

    I like 3 the best and for some reason I can’t quite figure out, I like the limey one the least. Unusual, since that’s often a favorite of mine. #3 seems the most balanced-I guess I like that aspect. Nice threadwork as well Gerrie.

  2. Those are fabulous.

    They are all lovely but I LOVE the limey one most.

    Changing the color of thread really added a lot of interest. I like the balance of complementary colors in #4. They vibrate a bit.

    These are wonderful, Gerri! My favorites are the bottom three, but I love them all! Maybe it is between 3 & 4. Not much help, am I?
