Randomly Pieced Canvas

As my work grew to embracing more texture, it was enjoyable to use a beefy canvas that was dyed, cut in random strips and sew the strips back together.  This gave me a new fabric to work with that created a more interesting textural surface.  Once the fabric was back together, it was recut and spontaneously sewn into a new composition with raw edges and random shapes.  This piece has been constructed in that fashion, but is not in its final incarnation yet.
