Garden Sketches Early Spring. This piece is from a study of patchwork collage compositions that were designed on grid fabric with 1" intervals, kind of like graph paper. I gathered fabric scraps and very small fabric samples for a neutral color palette accented with sage, moss and olive green. My choice of colors were influenced by the colors of early springs in my garden (about one block away from the Chicago River) of black soil and bare trees with a hint of spring coming from the new growth of lichen and moss. I referred to these small studies as sketches as if I sketched the designs on graph paper.
