A Little Bit of Shiva Paintstik or Something More?

I was at the courthouse today for jury duty but mid-way through the morning we were released. Hurrah!

Bonus day in the studio. I set to work on a piece that need an extra punch. These are just strips of commercial cotton of various widths that I sewed side-to-side and then cut at odd angles, sashed randomly in white and set them all against a black background. 

Here is the piece now. I think it needs a little bit more of something. What do you think? Please share your thoughts.

  1. In the "before" the black frames the colored blocks; now the black is part of the piece. They're both interesting, just different. I tend to think in terms of 'frames' for my quilts, so a plain (narrow) black binding would, possibly, to me, give it the stopping point that it might need. (or maybe not? I dunno.... I have a difficult time envisioning possibilities sometimes.)
