New Work: Chromatic Quilt

I finally put the finishing touches on Chromatic Quilt, a piece I started on last year (or was it in 2011?) and then set aside because I didn't quite know what to do with it.  The answer was to add yellow. Cadmium Yellow Hue was too bright, so I toned it down with ochre.  And here's the result.

I haven't decided on what its official orientation should be. One nice thing about its square format is that I like the way it looks no matter how it's rotated.

Here are some detail photos of it.

And from this angle, you can see the pattern on the side of the painting:

All 4 sides of it are painted.  If you can't make it to my studio, I'm selling Chromatic Quilt on Etsy. Shipping to the US (except for Alaska & Hawaii) is free since this piece is over $100.
