The windows of my apartment face west and some evenings, I am treated to the magnificent colors of a sunset like this one. After enjoying a view like this, I find myself reaching for richly saturated oranges, pinks and purples in whatever art materials are close at hand. That evening it was textured yarn that inspired me to sit down and create a freeform knitted square. I just kept going around and around the square, adding different yarns as I went along. I had no idea what it was that I was creating but felt compelled to express those rich colors in some way. Now my square is hanging in my studio waiting for what’s next.
Should I make my square into a bag? A wall hanging? Add beads? Most definitely about the beads. What do you think? What inspires you to create?
