back in the spring i planted these glorious sunflowers and they have been blooming profusely next to my outdoor workspace for the past month. much to my surprise i had unintentionally placed them right where they would grow up and be viewed from the inside- out the window over my kitchen sink. i have been enjoying them so much. everyday they are right next to me as i work at the indigo vat and as i dye and steam colored silks and in the morning when i make a cup of coffee or do the dishes i see them from inside the kitchen.
i recently dyed up some silk organza for flower work and as i often do, i just let my imagination run with the moment as i poured dye over the fabric. without intention really, just letting intuition and the moment lead me on.
so i guess it was no real surprise that one of the colors ended up mimicking the colors of the flowers i see everyday. but still, somehow i was surprised.
i wonder what i will see today…
maybe it is related to what Jude is doing here.
more about listening to your own voice and less about “trends” and other such things.
