Only An Artist - Amulets

An artist friend who had never been to my house stopped to pick something up a few days ago.

As you know when you visit me the first time you get to choose two amulets - one to keep and one to give away.

It was interesting to watch an artist make selections. The amulets were viewed with an artists eye and intelligent questions were asked. I would guess my friend did not even realize what they were doing - it just comes naturally for an artist.

But, I think the most interesting thing was something I found after my friend left.

The amulets were arranged very precisely in the tray - something no one else has done! There was a relationship apparent in the way they were placed.

As an artist I find the arrangement and relationship of things is something I am passionate about. I will move something 1/2 inch if it looks better that way. Before I put things away - as I am doing today - to have the carpet restretched tomorrow - I take pictures of things so I know where they go. I will follow the photos when I put things back and tweak the arrangements as necessary.

The amulets make a colorful puzzle for you today.
