Nobody likes to do the laundry. Well, maybe some folks do, but not the ones I know. It’s a detestably boring activity whose necessity becomes apparent with each smelly pile of daily contributions. Laundry is just that, until upon closer inspection, you become obscessed with the patterns before you. Then, another world emerges from the constant grind of daily chores. At that moment, art is life and life is art. Each set of patterns leads to a host of playful compositions. They introduce themselves like eager guests at the best cocktail party.

When this artwork emerged from a host of others, it reminded me of two modern dancers crouching and twisting their bodies in preparation for a sudden leap. They blended neatly with the patterns on the floor which grounded them. Yet, they were trying to find their own identity apart from their surroundings.

We’re all trying to discover our unique character and purpose. The world is a confusing place. Sometimes, we feel like a number, ordinary, dull, maybe even unlovable. Like avoiding the laundry, we artfully dodge pain producing or unpleasant tasks, choosing instead to to travel the pleasant, familiar road, but there’s no real growth there. In order to learn, reach our goals, even surpass our greatest dreams we must continue to embrace the struggle.

     Often, our most hated chores provide the best photo opportunities. In this black and white shot, the pattern of the object becomes the backdrop for an amazing optical illusion. The gentle folds carry your eyes from the corner of the image to its center and back again. It’s visual completion.

Have a wonderfully creative weekend!

     I’ve decided to continue my abstract “Blind Faith” series with some new optical additions. This “O” formation was relatively easy to do and rounds out the other works quite nicely. If you move your screen up and down, the illusion is complete. The rings of the “O” appear to vibrate from the center. I’ll add other creations as time allows. In the meantime, enjoy a peaceful and wonderfully creative weekend.
