Boy, do I feel scattered! I’ve been having a perfect storm of a week. You know the kind. It is when every aspect of my life seems to reach the boiling point at the same time. Where should I focus? What can I let go? Tempting as it is to close up the studio and turn my attention elsewhere, I refuse. I know that time spent in the studio is vital to my mental well being.
On the surface, Rainbow Aura looks like a simple, borderline traditional quilt. However, as with many of my non representational works, this one feels like a visual representation of my current life. Check out all those life paths in bold swaths of color and how there is an attempt to reign them in with the rings. Each of the small squares can represent steps taken to move forward. Yet, those steps are criss crossing and going in circles.
Do you, like me, find your work reflecting what you are dealing with?
I am linking up with Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Fridays.
