"I Am So Fascinated..."


...lately
by beautifully dyed fabrics
with exotic patterns from far away places.
I love the promise of the wonderful adventures
and stories each piece might reveal.
Presented here above is the second ATC from my
I have entitled this one
"Temple Sunrise"...and I have yet to write its story...:)
Any input?
Also...in case you wondered...
the blue/green version above is a Microsoft digital flip-
a simple little thing which delights me
to no end. Enjoy! :)

that you forget the ordinary.”

it's so interesting...my brother have for today like homework for english lesson to comment: "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life" (Pablo Picasso). It's very real proverb. I was very surprised when i see it today again like the main subject in your blog.I study economy faculty,but i like veru much to do interesting things,and seeing this proverb for twice make me believe that is something special in this and maybe i must do that make my soul to feel more happy.

Those hot colors in the original are gorgeous. They could conjur up an interesting story. It all began in the SW...

"Her heart held so much passion you could literaly see the heat trying to burst through the fabric of her sari. No garment could contain her feelings, no matter how tightly woven the silk. If you stood close enough to her the smoldering fabric would eventually find its way to your nostrils. Nothing, short of spontaneous combustion could keep her from the one she loved."


Okay, I'm back now! I got a little carried away!

I love this series Margaret. Just lovely~and image conjuring apparantly ;)

I love the vitality of these silk saris. Input for story? all I could think was the stars (little white dots) had fallen down into diamond shapes above the archways bringing even more light ..... or being 'Sunrise' are they going up into the heavens from the temple??.
