Drawing with light





Yesterday a burst of energy coincided with perfect weather conditions and I was finally able to try something that had been on my mind for ages. Summer seemed to be back (last seen in April) - the sun was shining full-blast and I took outside a copper-wire doily I’d crocheted. The sharpness of the shadow-drawings delights me no end. Glad I seized the moment as sky overcast today again.
(if you click on the individual pix you can look at them full-size, it's worth it)

dear Marjojo, thank you for your thoughtfull comment. i didn't do anything today but sat and look at my work scattered about, and i just realized it is just as you put it - to let the work breathe...it did not occur to me to think of it this way until you mentioned it, and now i see that indeed i really needed some space myself to just sit back and take in a couple of deep breaths as well...

i see this here with your copper-wire doily and it brings a smile just imagining you outside playing so happily with it. i did not know that it was actually copper wire (thought you just meant the color) until i saw the bigger images. so beautiful in the shimmering light. i wish i could be surrounded by all your work.
