I have to smile having just intentionally misspelled the word news. My uncle Shlomo, now sadly deceased, used to rail against the American propensity for intentional misspellings. The word night written as nite on a highway billboard would set him off about the bad example this brand of spelling error was setting for the youth of this country. Looking back, I realize that his rant was slightly tongue in cheek, but I have to wonder what he would think of the inundation of our culture and language with email influenced shortenings like LMK and LOL.
What does that have to do with the title of this post? Uh...nothing. I'm a stream of consciousness kind of thinker and stuff just comes to mind.
Anyway, I've added some new items to my shop and thought I'd showcase them here first.
Both these pieces are made with what I call "low volume" fabrics. I really enjoy working with intense colors, but these fabrics offer me a respite. I need that every once in a while so I can return to color with a fresh eye. Also, it really lets me focus on the graphic quality of these fabrics.
I love the simplicity of these items. They feel fresh, and making them is almost a cleansing experience. I actually currently working on several pieces that are raucous with color, but I'm sure I'll need to make more of these kinds of things down the road. I guess it's just a matter of balance.
