My necklace called itself complete the other day. This is the one that lay unfinished on my desk for over a year. And just in time - I received my manuscript from the publisher and am steeped in writing for the next 4 weeks.
The only problem is... I don't know what it's name is.
This isn't usually a problem - the name usually evolves with the piece. But I have been so immersed in teaching and writing about color and color relationships that I have color vocabulary in my head... saturation, complementary, color flow, transitions... these terms and definitions oozing from my left brain. And of course, names and words are the left brain's forte. But I need to convey the emotion of this piece - it's name is important.
Where is my right brain when I need it?
Perhaps I will draw inspiration from Smadar and her visions of Latin dancers...
I'm also struggling to get a really good picture of the whole piece where the brown doesn't look black and the orange glows... not there yet, but getting close.
