I never fear that someone will attempt to copy my work. A friend of mine saw my first piece that I made for this blog: title SPECTRUM, and exclaimed, “that would look great in my house!”. That is a great compliment. She has been a God send to me helping with my relocation to Washington State. She had a birthday recently and what better gift could I give to her than a piece with the same theme? In my attempt to make one for her, I prove again to myself that it is impossible to repeat any one piece; to capture the essence. Anytime I set out to make something new, I am filled with many ideas. There is no way I could ever go down the same path again. If I can’t repeat one of my own pieces, how would someone else?
This piece has two small pieces of silk and one piece of dyed lace.
I plan to add some beads to highlight the lace.
All that is left is the stitching within the black border.
While I am in the creative process making art for someone, I think about that person the whole time; it is natural. I like that. Meditation of one thought pattern. I think she will like this piece just as much, if not more than the first.
