I love Otto Ditko’s paintings (to see more go to www.ottoditko.com ). I am thinking of taking one of these ribbonlike paintings as inspiration for a big fabric collage above my bed. I think I will use fuschia and black fabric (trying to find hideous thrift store taffeta prom dress to cut into strips) on a natural background and sew it on with yellow embroidery thread. Right now I have metal rings I linked together with wire and painted white above the bed, but as hard as I tried to turn in the ends of the wire I used to connect them, my husband kept getting poked in the head. So, after he put duct tape “protection” all over it, I figured I would move it to the other wall. Here is what it used to look like:
I love the rings, but I love the family more. So, off they go to the opposite wall.
