October 2018 Currents
circle stops, becomes
a point that reappears, falls
dancing with currents, a leaf–
pausing on the patterned wind
It took me quite awhile to do my monthly grid. I wanted to do very tiny squares, but I kind of lost control of the amount. I intended a small piece of work, but my intentions and results often have different ideas. Also, I never realized how much uninterrupted time it takes just to go through my bins of cut up paper and decide what to use. At any rate, it was conveniently finished in time to do a tanka for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday, poet’s word choice. I will pick rilling for one, and then currents. That’s October 2018.
I could have spent a lot more time messing around with these images in Photoshop, but unfortunately, or luckily, I didn’t have it. So: two versions of October’s circular grid. The first is done from a scanned image, the second from a photo (the entire collage wouldn’t fit in the scanner). The color and texture are totally different. Light has many ways of changing what we see.
