In the burlap banner I start by taking in the entire textural surface for a moment. I then move to the top sisal string, the open line and follow it left, and at the bottom left corner it crosses over the other thread. It moves into a loose knot and travels back in the same path, crosses over and then goes into a round knot that is off the surface of the burlap. My eye travels around that circle and back to do the entire corse again. It is intricate, and yet not complicated. I like the comfort of the down-home feel of the fabric and the plainness of the sisal rope that forms its curls because of its nature in fabrication.
