|"Red Hot Chili Pepper" quilted wall hanging Cindy Grisdela|
In "Red Hot Chili Pepper" above, I used red as a neutral background to ground the busy improvisational blocks. Notice how the use of red's complement, green, in the blocks creates some open spaces in the blocks. This is a cheerful, energetic piece that adds a welcome splash of color to a narrow space in my home. It would have had a very different feel if I had used beige or white, which are more commonly accepted as neutral backgrounds, wouldn't it?
