works assembled with monotypes shaped in rounds and photographed with digitally generated lacy patterns for added "mood"...
I am caught in between commitments, many important decisions to make in many fronts, while time seems to be speeding by out of control! I wish I had the power to slow down time, make the day last [much] longer, or at least invent a magic measuring instrument to calculate every task, effort, accomplishment and fit it within the limits of reality... Instead I keep on adding to the "things to do"/ "artworks to create", while trying to distribute inspiration and enthusiasm to all demanding compartments... equally!

  1. Well, Anna, when you come up with *that* formula I suggest you patent it -you'll make a fortune!

  2. Exquisite! That first photo...especially the top left section...has me nose to...well, nose to screen trying to figure out if you cut out the delicate patterns and hung them to get those delicious shadows...or is it all a trick of the light?

    It's all so wonderfully playful, yet very elegant. Thanks for sharing. Jennifer

    1. Jennifer, thank you for your attention to all the details.
      The "lace" effect and its shadow are digitally created, then added to the photograph of my spherical structure.

  3. Yes, Anna, if you come up with that formula please share it with us before you patent it for everyone else! I know all about that 'runaway train' feeling that we get in periods of great creativity colliding with day to day demands of life but yours has produced some beautiful work, yet again. I tried to make one of those poly- tetra - gamma-hedron things* once but it did not look anything as cool as yours!(* I know that's not what they are called but the name escapes me!)

    1. Lesley, thank you for your always delightful comments; I promise to spread the word if I do invent the way to fit the million tasks into a regular day!!! In the meantime I am juggling and running and racing the clock, and sometimes falling apart; but then getting back to continue my course, to laugh and to agonize, and then some...
      BTW the structure -I would guess- falls in the category of ikosahedra (eikosaedron: solid figure with twenty plane faces); being Greek helps remembering these words...

  4. They look exquisite as ever Anna - and the atmospherics you create with your lace effects are stunning. Best wishes for this crazy period; hope it all falls into place.

  5. Alas, that time conundrum... oh dear. That said, these are lovely! I'm glad you managed to conjure up enough time to make them. It's good you showed the one being held--the impressive scale...makes them even more impressive! Neat.

  6. Ellen, so nice to "hear" from you!
    I felt so "high" with this work, but when I photographed it and saw the results... I couldn't believe how "small" they looked! So I asked my husband to offer his hands... and YESSSS! I was glad he did, and I am glad you noticed!!!
