The past weekend, I continued to work on "Flame". That describes the colors perfectly: reds, oranges, golds and yellows. For the life of me, this piece will not tell me the shape it is wanting to be. Haven't a clue, and everything thing I try looks cattywampus.
So I've set it aside for a bit, and cast a new piece. All in blues, golds and yellow. Reminiscent of Van Gogh's "Starry Night", mayhaps. This piece was so much fun! From sourcing the wool and mohair fibers and laying them out. Sewing was a dream, and so very zen-like. Amazing how fast the time goes when this happens in the studio. I love the interlocking gold circles with the swirls of yellow over them. Rimming the edges with those colors just flowed! And it "told" me exactly what shape it wanted to be!
The next step will be the layering of paints: blues on yellows on golds. Layers and layers. This is so much fun! Really looking forward to tomorrow! And in the meantime, I'll keep "listening" to "Flame" to see if it is ready to be some shape!
