Have you ever had one of those days where you so badly wanted to be in the studio and to create yet once there it ended up being on those days where the studio was the last place you should be? You know what I mean...either the ideas are playing hide and seek and it is their turn to hide or, for some reason, nothing quite clicks.
Well, that is what my morning has been like. I am in a funk today and have no good reason for being in it. The sun is shining, the snow is melting, the girls are at preschool and I have had two hours in the studio to work with the indigo. All of which should add up to a creatively productive and satisfying time. Instead, after an hour or so, I realized that it was time to call it quits for the day as far as doing anything remotely creative.
Unwilling to leave the studio just yet, I turned to what are really the first two completed indigo pieces. Back when the indigo was whispering that it should be made into spreads from a book, these two were sewn together along with a piece of organza. The indigo has since changed its mind and wants to be individual pages or letters. So, in that spirit, the spread was separated.
