Re Emergence

I am re-introducing some earlier work today. This pastel and pencil drawing was posted a few years ago as part of several images and I thought it deserved a new posting of its own. It is currently providing some information for a textile piece I am 'stalking' so it is very present in my mind these days.

Focus and Exploration

Today I was curious to see what happens if a completed piece of work is explored a bit more closely.  For this exercise I chose a very small sketch I drew years ago, which up to now has simply been tacked on my bulletin board providing general visual information.

I played around with it in Photoshop (a first for me!) and was pleasantly surprised at the results.

I'm picturing silk screened fabrics, embroidery, applique, felting. Although maybe not all at once.

Focusing and exploring in this way helped me discover some new ways of seeing.

I encourage you to try it :)

Don't Ask Me Why

Don't ask me why.
I have nothing to say on the matter.
Let it simply be.
Let me simply be.
I need no explanation.
