Simple...


is best. It may not always be easy to achieve, but it's definitely best. In management circles, they have a saying ; Keep It Simple, Stupid! or KISS for short. I try to remember it, but of course, sometimes, I forget, and get into much more elaborate work than I'd intended. But pieces like this, a small embellisher piece, are fun to make and effective just because they are so simple. Next time you find yourself bogged down in your work, try remembering the KISS idea...you never know, it might just help. That, or a good brisk walk! Or both, even!

Hello Marion
I belive your right I looked at this piece close up and it is really lovely.. I too tend to do a lot of things on my art, I must try to do just simple. I think that will be harder then it sounds LOL.. Have a good one... Big hugs to the big guy and you...

I'm the same, I go OTT with some of my work. Since joining all these lists and swaps I seem to be working faster and my style is becoming more simple and this can only be good. I love your embellished work in it's simplicity Marion.
