After an incredibly long day, on which I left for work at 5.45 am and returned home at 10 pm, I slept a looooong time. I rarely sleep late. In fact, I cannot remember when the last time was that I slept solidly through most of the morning.
On Wednesday I slept until 11 am and woke to find the most intriguing shadows on my walls. Normally, by 11 am I have been up and doing things for several hours, and usually, would already be in my studio. With the curtains still closed the light leaked around the edges creating patterns at angles that I would not normally be there.
This is a child's obi bow. I love the exaggerated distortion of the second shadow. The tassel is transformed from ornament to space ship!
So next time you sleep in take a moment to look around. You never know what new life your ornaments may have taken on while you slumbered.
