Design Wall Friday – DWFPosted on February 18, 2017 by Beth Markel
I’ve committed to posting every Friday, literally, what’s on my design wall. This week has been a process of decisions – and this evening, Friday, I’ve come to where I think this purple/gold/yellow piece is headed. Rather than explain how I started with a cluster of leftover blocks from a workshop and purple background, I’ll just show you the pictures. Somebody asked me once after I had finished a trunk show, “Where do your ideas come from?” I wish I could say that I had a dazzling or witty response, but I’m a pretty simple gal – my work comes from a place of joy, sheer joy to be alive, my husband loves me (bless his heart!), my children are grown, flown, and both happily married, and I get to do what I love. I get to create – because I need to create – and I want to create something beautiful!
Without being impressed with any of these avenues, finally, yesterday afternoon, I thought it might be more interesting if it looked like the blocks had slices of different colors peeking through…I might be on to something!
Make something today!
