|Ready to Rock & Roll|
Returning to my studio, I located a skein of violet ombre yarn to use to use for the wrapping. With no plan or design in mind, I slowly wrapped the yarn around the circumference of my rock, watching as each new line interacted with both the rock and previously wrapped yarn lines. Just as I started to lose myself in the wrapping process, I suddenly realized that the yarn was taking over the rock underneath. I unwrapped a few passes and stopped once balance had returned: hard and soft, bright color next to dull greys, straight lines and gentle curved outlines...
My meditative state continued as I photographed my wrapped rock from various angles, watching as the light interacted with the contours of the rock, wrapped yarns and my hand dyed fabric backdrop!
Before beginning this week's prompt, I figured it would be a quick 5-10 minute experience. By using all my senses and allowing myself to become totally immersed in the process, I've enjoyed both the process and the many discoveries along the journey. As a result, I've become rather attached to my meditation rock, and it now lives in my studio as a personal reminder to slow down and look for balance in my art, work and life!
