Points of View

Points of View 35.5 x 21.125"
I had a tough time deciding which way it should hang.  Currently this is it, but I created the sleeve so I could attach another sleeve to any of the other sides.  I'll have to get the tripod up to take the picture straight, this is the best I could do. 
I don't know if "Points of View" should be the name. I'm also thinking of "One Point of View: Many Points of Perspective".  People have so many different points of view on any one subject. 

On the news this morning they showed yesterdays Minneapolis Gay Pride Parade, and the issue of gay marriage going forward in New York...that's a subject with a million different points of view!
If it only represented that one volatile subject, I would have made some of the buildings crumbling with decay.
And which side of the subject would the decayed buildings represent?  Well that would depend on your personal point of view, wouldn't it?

Scraps with different points of view.

I haven't been blogging because my computer monitor died.  I got a new one yesterday so here's what I've been doing in the mean time.
I put together this piece with the leftover scraps from making "Buildings".  While I was making the "Buildings" piece, continually rearranging them, I was thinking how a piece would be if the 1 point perspectives were all messed up.  Really like the points of view on any given subject some agree, most don't agree, and until you've walked a mile in someone else's shoes... 
I only put a few of the buildings from different 1 point perspectives close enough to touch the other, but in real life I believe most are over lapping.

Still there were more leftovers (lots and lots) so I ripped a couple long swaths of white fabric 5" wide and started applying all the leftovers to that.
By the end of tonight it's either going to be a border or a binding, but I don't know yet.
That and laundry and work to do yet...

Never satisfied!

I keep changing it, moving them around, then I need a new one, then I don't like the flow...
So after I'm all done making the buildings and pinning them to the wall, how the heck am I going to take it down from the design wall???

When your design covers the guide drawing...

I pin ribbon on for floating guidelines when I get to the point where they're covered:
Floating guidelines.  By going past the corner, I have freed the corner from having a pin that might interfere with adding design elements.

The ribbon going all around the design.

The lady had a little too much red bull!

I've been replacing some screens on the house...and I have to agree, if I had known how easy it was, I would have done the entire house years ago!  It literally takes 5 minutes and the screen is perfectly flat.
This old package of fiberglass screening with the scary looking lady had a Target price tag on it for $1.99!  So how old is that?
I guess the screen company had a demographic of a-little-bit-too-happy, one-armed, single, caucasian women with long red fingernails (and no wedding ring!).  Of course, if she did have wedding ring on, we'd know she married a bum of a husband because, following traditional gender rolls, he should be doing the screens so that she doesn't break her fingernails.  And if she were married, she probably wouldn't be wearing red lipstick and a pearl necklace... 
And I had to use a file on my nails after I was that's why they don't have her thumb in the picture, I'm sure she cracked that nail...
