Living This Creative Life

I have two favorite quotes. The first one is by Emile Zola, "If you asked me what I came into this world to do, I would tell you that I came to live out loud". I don't know who the second one is by, but it goes like this, "If you're not living on the edge then you might as well jump". Both of these sentiments sum up my personal philosophy of this experience we call life on earth. Enjoy!

Art Every Day, 1/6/13,

Here is my project for today. I was going for something nest like, but I'm not sure that I hit that particular nail on the head. I like it, a little - I like the scrunchy background and all of the colorful bits of thread from our dyeing dryer.  What I'm not happy with is the shape of the opening. It's a little vaginal - which was not my intention.  I love the color - it's hard to go wrong with direct complements.
The rest of my day, a blessed day off, I will spend reading Barbara Kingsolver's new book; Flight Behavior.
Till tomorrow,
Heather

I also love this color combination. And I love how you are exploring what's underneath in so many pieces.

This has made me think about a lot of things- things I never even considered as a possibility in my own work.

I had to laugh a little at your comment about this, because I will admit, I thought it too- but I can also see it as the opening of a piece of luggage or a bag of some sort, with all kinds of hidden treasures inside...
