Yea! I got a hit!


   Woo! Hoo!  Cili Cecilia’s on a Roll!  Rocked my first post in the world of blogdom!  I got one hit!!!!!  EEEEEHa!  Way to grab the brass ring!

But seriously folks, I am not all about who wore what to which Hollywood confab, I am just about wanting to share my love of gentle places, like this piece brings to mind when I look at it,  I call this one:

“Mountain Meadow”  It reminds me of sitting on a fallen log on a hillside with wild flowers growing in profusion all around me.  The colors are misty, soft and I can almost feel the sun over my shoulder as I sit on the log my eyes feasting on the beauty around me.   This is actually my second attempt at a floral theme in my work.  Mostly, my work has been far less structured than that.  Genereally I just pick a piece of drift wood, or a fallen piece of a tree that I find pretty, start tying my knots whichever way they seem to want to flow.  I have enjoyed a freedom from structuring my work for the most part, and just let my fingers fly where they will.

That is until recently when I have been answering the call of trying to convey actual pictures in my work.  Currently I am making a piece that I seem to be breaking many of my former “rules” with.  It is not firstly mounted on anything, I have been making parts of a picture to be tied together, or assembled.  So not my usual way of working.  Now I am finding the challenge of breaking away from the norm to be very stimulating.  Which is wonderful since I recently went through a stretch of a couple of months not even feeling like working.  Sort of ‘knotter’s block”, yuk!  Now I can happily report that I am getting a bit obsessive about keeping my hands busy again!!  Yea!

I KNOT THEREFORE I AM

When I was knee high to a grasshopper

I heard somewhere along my knee high path

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery

My innate need for creative outflow

Is merely an attempt to flatter

The grasshopper’s Maker
