Hank starts his protective barking and I know it's someone coming to the door...but I'm in my studio and by the time I race down the stairs...hoping not to fall the moment passes and things calm down to me waving out the front door window at the UPS driver...(he lives in our neighborhood, kind of cool) Anyways I open it up and I receive this book...I open it up and see that it's from my mentor...who know's I've been working on some stuff and I start to read the inside preface and think...Oh My God..this is so cool...I totally get it and it's best understood so simply done with shapes, color and how their placed...and our reaction to them.
So if your into the elements and principle of design this is a great book....Oh Thank you Mentor Carol...my Sage Woman....Aho~
so now I want to savor this piece and ask some question about it...I really do feel the red is to represent the blood of all living things...the triangle is to symbolize a higher presence in my life....guidance as some would say. but the sticks....the pick up sticks I use a lot in my work....the chaos in a neat pile...what is that all about. I might never know but it sure was cool to finish this up and experience a great read.
I've already finished to responses back...one a demo/workshop contract for Nov. with the Hinsdale Embroiderer's Guild and my entry for a fund raiser at The Clearing...now to the post office.
