Contemporary Art Quilter Pat Pauly's random thoughts and excursions made public.
My vote is for the first photo with the light bits in the corners. It looks more natural - as if the leaves are sitting on top of other leaves. Not placed or contrived.
Corners. Nice idea.
Like the one with light in the corners!!
I love both. The lighter corners give a lighter, brighter feel. The lighter center is a stronger design.
I like the light in the center. It makes the leaves seems floating up and out.
Light in the corners.
#2 (light in the center) feels more unified and dynamic to me. My eye is drawn to the center. Leaves seem to gently spin like a pinwheel. (I love the tiny red bits between the leaves on the yellow!). #1 (light in the corners) feels more static and tranquil. The forest floor. A little more focus on the individual leaves.
Hmmm, a good dilemma or pondering! Light in the center attracts me first...but, do like the other as more natural.
The corners, that surprises me, I would have thought the center.
The symmetry of the light pieces in the middle looks best to me.
Well, many thanks for all the feedback! I love each reason for either situation. And I had been leaning one way, now to be swayed to another. Guess I'll have to sleep on it one more night.
