In one of the groups I belong to (212 Fiber Artists), the challenge was issued to create a piece of art using a limited color palette.  And within that palette use 70 percent of one color, 30 percent of another, and 10 percent using any of the remaining colors.  In addition the piece had to be attached to a painted canvas.   Inspiration struck this weekend…and I finished my challenge piece.  IMG_1138

Although it was a lot of fun playing with color and shapes and balance and repetition, I found myself sitting back and asking what this abstraction says to me… deriving some meaning and connection to it after it was finished.   I decided to title it, “Listen”.  And then, I found this quote:

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. When we really listen to people there is an alternating current, and this recharges us….Brenda Ueland

  2. However do you do it?? To name your piece “Listen” and then to find a quote that mentions alternating currents which is what your creation resembles. I guess that is what real talents does!!! Beautiful.
