Obsessed with the Spiral

Since beginning The 40 Day Creativity Experiement I became somewhat obsessed with the spiral.  I worked on the piece for the whole 40 days, sometimes a bit, sometimes not at all and then whole bunches of hours not minutes. The book form turned into quite the snake of a thing and while I am not sure she’s done, I have put her to rest for now.  If I stretched her out she would be well over 8 feet long and yet I could see her getting bigger still. We will have to see what the muse provides in the way of whispers as to her future.  For now she sits on the shelf with her sisters, having a good old chat. You can click on any of the photos in the gallery to make them larger.

    I love your colours of purple, and greenish yellow, and orange-they all together makes a most vibrant and beautiful “snake” and my eyes wants to follow it all, from center till end…..

    This has turned out fantastic! I especially love the photo of the group of scrolls together, they hint at deep and meaningful messages inside. Well done you!
