what if? - continued

Picking up where I left off the other day..here is the piece I was dealing with. I added to it almost immediately - and it came together 1-2-3...up to a point.

At that point (below - and a more accurate color) it told me exactly what it wants to be. It is now up to me to figure out how to get it there. This is a piece I have needed to make for 8 or 9 years and I haven't been able to make it work. But this time, without thinking about it or trying to execute the idea I have had in my head for so long, there it is. I started with the fabrics and no idea of where it was going, unlike the way Omega works.

It doesn't matter to me what YOU see, it is what I know it is about that makes the difference. There is one more element that needs to be included and then we'll see whether it needs to be bigger or not. I also know that since it is pinned to the poard and just slapped up there, it will never look exactly the same once I have taken it down and put it together. But that is part of the process.

In a little while, I am off with my friend Seema to see an art exhibit (our second monthly art day). It is a national juried exhibit at the NJ Center for the Visual Arts. If I can take pictures, I will, and will check back later
