This piece was made in order to answer the question, "Can a minimalist find happiness in over-embellishment?" The answer is a very definitive yes and no!

On the one hand, I like this piece. It was fun to do. It's a beaded fabric collage, and it made me very happy to work on it. BUT, even though I kept telling myself to pile on the beads, add more color, more more more...I just couldn't do it. I can see where lots more beads and stuff could be added, but it is just not my style. I tried, I really really did. But this is as close as I might ever get to one of those stuffed-to-the-gills art quilts that I admire.

As it is, I would have been happy enough to stop when it looked like this.
