Studio Series: Nebula 3: back & front

Many moons ago I rust-stained, naturally dyed, and stitched this rectangular textile. Nebula I and Nebula II are in private collections. Nebula III was an experiment in odd proportions and it didn't really work. The other day, as I was organizing my studio, I decided to cut Nebula III up into tags. Then, I turned it over to see the back and I was smitten with the lines.

Nebula III will yield two tags. Initially, I was going use the red side for the fronts of both tags, but now I think I'll use one red and one gold.

very interesting - the look reminds me of map contour lines
