Last night I put the final stitches in my "Passion" piece. I like how it turned out, but I am still not entirely satisfied by how I finally chose to portray "passion". Passion is such a big word and should bring up very strong and personal feelings and experiences, I kept thinking. In a way I stepped back from that personal connection and went for someone else's passion. But perhaps being moved by another's passion inspires passion in ourselves.
I almost want to make another one, but I probably won't. If I did it would be a heart, filled with complex color and texture. I know a heart is a trite motif, but it is one I revisit and always love. I create a valentine every year and always include a heart. Here is one of my favorites from quite a few years back.
