A Dark Weave


After creating the Scared picture my mood dropped and I found myself in a dark place. It wasn’t all bad though – creative ideas began to emerge. The first idea was to create a piece of weaving all in grey reflecting my dark mood and that is what I have done here. Grey isn’t a colour I would normally use and is a reflection of my dark mood. I completed this piece in only 24 hours. I threw myself into expressing the dark and broken place that I was in. The hole in the middle, the top layer of tassels having different lengths and the hanging cord being comprised of pieces of yard tied together (not visible in the photo) represent the broken feeling. As I expressed my feelings through this piece, I did find my mood lifting.

  1. I’m moved by your soul’s creative expression, through painful — “dark” — moods and also during less painful, more joyous experiences. I feel that your creative impulse is a powerful force, the expression of your unique and sacred, precious “self” coming through.
