I was sifting through things and came across this hand painted woven plaid from my days at F.I.T. It was so long ago. Things have changed so much. This took quite a long time to create and now it would be done on the computer and about 5 minutes with the ability to change to color even faster. I really love the computer and all the great design capabilities it comes with but I still think there is something to be said for the hand drawn/ hand painted work. I know it isn't practical or even desired in the business world anymore. Heck, I wouldn't want to be the one having to sit there and paint a gazillion new colorways. I do think this would be a great element in a painting/collage that I am going to explore further.
