"Light and Shadows" Heart

I've completed another heart - this time calling it "Light and Shadows".  The fibers that I recently acquired made this story easy to tell.  I couldn't resist combining the Wildflower shade of 'winter wheat' with warm gold and soft lavender.  As I punched this heart it seemed to speak to me of canyon walls with their warmth and the depths of the shadows within.  The button in the center (which unfortunately reflects light so that you aren't getting a true picture of its color and richness) looks like a glazed tile piece - also in a rich, warm gold color. 

I'd love to know what you see when looking at this design?

"Shadow is a colour as light is, but less brilliant; light and shadow are only the relation of two tones". - Paul Cezanne


  1. It reminds me of looking down on a landscape from a plane..

  2. I see continents with water between, and the button is a very large grounding influence in that earth thought. The reverse side is very sweet, and I love the soft colors everywhere. Another wonderful Penny punch piece !

  3. Your heart series is very subtle...not the usual red cliché. It invites a thoughtful response. Your textile work is lovely.
