My head is bursting...too many exciting things happen when one is motivated by color and design. The memories of the trip still consume my thoughts as the routine of life and the issues brought on by that start to interfere. Life goes on and aren't we lucky! So when we have had a break from the routine something interesting happens in the brain. Things all around us feel fresh and new again instead of blended into the passing moments of life. Perhaps it is because we have filled our mind with new things.For example, a visit to the Chihuly Museum in Seattle with LeeAnne. This was a visual surprise to me.
Everything so delicately made of glass but exploding with color.
Even outside in an environment that blends the real with the unreal the eye is questioning texture, color, shape and line throughout the gardens.
In the real world that surrounds us we have a variety of shapes, lines and forms that create direction for the eye to follow.
Over, around, up and down then across.
Then there are the humble moments of genious...a chair turned into a flower pot!
The creative wonders of the world are out there just waiting for our observation.
Back in the shop I turn my eye to fabric and how to make it reflect the world around me. First off the rank is selecting fabric for our up and coming block of the month release. There are so many gorgeous fabrics out at the moment that I can't hold a conversation without getting distracted by something I see! So...of I go to make choices and get things going.
