Continuing To Struggle...



... as my Granny would have said, there's nothing else for it.  I'm continuing to work on the piece I showed you yesterday, though I'm fast coming to the conclusion that depression and hand stitch do not mix well; three times, I've stabbed myself with my own needle, hard enough to draw blood...sigh.  So I think I'll go and do some more monoprinting, instead.

Here's a close up.  The piece is called 'Out Of Kilter'; the circles appear at first glance to be in a structured grid pattern, but they aren't really.  Some are ovals, some are circles.  It looks like I feel... a regular person on the outside, shambolic on the inside...out of kilter.

The next stage is to add some lime green crosses, I think.  No idea why, except that the colour is important.  They won't be regular, either, I shouldn't think.  For the meantime, though, I'm off to paint...

Interesting expressionZmally 94 isn't it, "out of kilter." What is kilter anyway, and can you be "in" it as well as out?

You can be in kilter...it means in balance, functioning as you are supposed to, as well as the reverse, out of kilter, not working as it should, not balanced. But you usually only find it in the negative.

I hope you found some enjoyment from the mono printing. I'm sorry to hear things are tough at the moment, I hope you will begin to feel better befor too long. Well done for keeping working too. I like the idea of the lime green too, it will make it zing!
