I have made something that does not fit into the collections that are already here on my (organized for convenience) website. I am going to pop it into the “Patterns” collection until I have more that belong together.
Here is a decorative moulding from a doorway turned into a rosette by mirroring itself and surrounded by undulating ribbon. I already have a bunch of pieces with these free form frames that are my current reason for being on the planet. I am sad to say that this scan has not captured the color of this to my satisfaction. However it has been hours of trying to tweak it and it is not better. The center object is varying hues and swings from purple to blue to pink to yellow. The computer is not an eyeball. A person can see with more variation and delight than any computer image can reproduce. Weird but true. But since most folks are not actually looking intently and seeing all the color delights around them, they need their attention brought to it by artists attempting to express it. I can perhaps get this image re-done in the future with better equipment.
So, what I am saying is that maybe the reason sunsets are so popular is they are glam enough to get attention from some people accustomed to looking down all the time. But I can assure you that if you do look more carefully and for periods of time, you will begin to see more and be more attuned to the nuances of everything around you. You might even be shocked and surprised at the beauty you had overlooked. What could be better than that?
