Tennis Balls on the Doorstep

I really liked the contrast between the reddish door and the yellow tennis balls.

Door and Tennis Balls at Newks

I was on a field assignment (a.k.a. an art quilt class) recently at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels, Texas. While other people were wielding their rackets on the tennis courts, my classmates and I were inside the conference center studying the theory of color and design. What I was doing inside seemed much harder than what they were doing outside. My idea is that if I take enough classes, eventually I’ll learn something. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I’m already signed up for three art quilt classes next year.)

  1. What makes this image is not only the contrast in colors but in forms. There is an inherent balance in this scene. The tennis balls draw your attention, but then the facade asserts itself. The design and proportions of the elements are perfect. This was a picture waiting to be taken, and you had the eyes to see that!
