Those of you who read my blog regularly will get the joke…what I am refering to is the kind of shapes I am drawn to. What did she say? yes, shapes, not sexual orientation, although that works too. I once had an art teacher who said there are no straight lines in nature…girrrrl, you preaching to the choir, lol. When I am working on a new project I always seem to make curvy lines instead of straight ones. In stained glass, curvy lines are harder to work with…figures. Even if the design is originally someone elses, I change it to incorporate wavy lines. Much of my work is inspired my nature so I guess it is no surprise.
I have a commission for three windows to go into a country church that calls for straight lines. The other windows in the church are very traditional and they want the new windows to fit into the existing ones, of course, I do too. So for a few months I am going to have to work with straight lines, fine, but I’m not going back into the closet! Girrrrrl, I don’t even know where the closet is any more.
God Bless, Julia
