I haven’t posted in weeks. Partially because I have been traveling, partially because a nasty cold leveled me, and partially because I am stuck.
The traveling was the good part. My sister and I spent two weeks in Ecuador last month. We had a fabulous time in two cities in the Andes Mountains. If that interests you check out Vacation in Ecuador .
The stuck part is not good. I know that sometimes when I get stalled its because I’m in the phase of creativity called “incubation” and “illumination” will come next showing a direction that may even be the right direction to proceed. But this just feels like stuck.
The Cardinal Flower piece is stuck in the wallpaper zone. The colors work OK
It needs some energy. I thought about adding a hummingbird or butterflies but I don’t think that will pull it together. Maybe chopping it up and sewing it back in a random manner?
On the other hand I am more or less pleased with this arrangement of Green Spaces.
I want the stitching to be a strong design element but have not yet come up with a plan.
So its time to leave these two on the design wall a bit longer and move onto something that will make me want to come to the studio the minute I wake up.
