This is my current work-in-progress. These abstract collages seem to happen when I am very troubled and need to get out of my head for a while. (Which reminds me, Ginny shared a way to help Sarah’s family.) The same sort of thing seems to happen while I’m knitting. My brain tends to spin over things I can’t change or control, and there is something about the rhythm of knitting and the rhythm of painting that helps me center. Yesterday was just such a day in the no man’s land of waiting for Ellianna’s test results again. I needed to find some breathing room. I was surprised at the bright colors that popped up in this one. I usually don’t go for bright yellow and pink, but it really works. I don’t think this one is done yet. It doesn’t feel ‘finished’ in my head…I’d really really like to try an encaustic process, I think. We’ll see.
Beautiful! I feel the same about knitting.
