Woven Runner

With strategically placed touches of color, Eleanor Arms transforms what might otherwise be an uninteresting arrangement of too strongly-contrasting colors into a unified, striking and deceptively simple composition. Deftly arranged hues from slate gray, to moss, salmon and various shades of brown give relief to large areas of black and pale yellow and pull the eye from here to there across the surface of the work, encouraging one to linger over this table runner.
