Writing my last post made me realize that yes indeed, I was unhappy with the center of my Red & Black Scrappy Rug. It had been bothering me for days but when I took the photo for my last post I realized it just "didn't sit right" for me and I wanted to change it.
So, I did. I went into the studio today and ripped out most of the center and rehooked the entire thing. Much better!
It may or may not be significant to a reader, visually, but it has made a big difference to me. I'm happy also with what I am learning from doing this scrappy rug.
While it's still not perfect, I'm not looking for perfect. I'm just looking for a visual that makes me comfortable. If I had left this the way it was, I would always have bothered me. So I am feeling a big "Ahhhhhhhhh!" this afternoon.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
My next Beginning Zentangle® class will be for a private group in October. That class is full.
I'll be teaching another beginning class at the Greenfield Community Center in the spring of 2019, date to be determined. They do not have a website so please call them for more information.
I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.)
Come and amaze yourself!
