Radishes: "Intuitive Tuesday"...( on Friday:)

I had this "great" idea. LOL  Take a day of the week... every week to create a piece somewhat outside your comfort zone.  Take time to choose some items to use that are picked by intuition only.  Then, create something with it.

  I found three scraps of fabric on the floor that were picked out of a basket by Ethan.  (Well, that he randomly grabbed from the basket and threw on the floor:))  I used these pieces to create this piece,  "Lonely Bird" #2.  I can't tell you how good it felt to create this little piece.  I can't wait to do some more pieces similar to these and the "wheels are turning".  I really don't know if the work would appeal to anyone but me,  but I absolutely felt something in my spirit that was so satisfying and a feeling of contentment came over me when I was in the last stages of completion.  I Just had one of those moments when I felt like all the sketching and experimenting I have been doing for the last few years finally (well almost) came together.  I wrote in an earlier post (probably more than one) that I haven't been able to get my "vision" from my head to my hands.  I think that I figured out the problem.  I wasn't letting my "heart" do it's part.  I wasn't "letting go" and  was more worried about whether or not it would have appeal to a "buying audience".  So I think I will try to make "intuitive Tuesday" a regular event.  Any one else want to join?:)
