Whatever Leads to Joy

Bought a bag of oranges which came in a mesh bag - was about to throw it out, then thought "hey, wait a minute... this looks a bit like that chain-link fence they put around playgrounds....!" And thus an idea was born.

See that little dark spot on the orange mesh? That's blood. Pricked my finger while sewing the thing.
Yup, there's proof: I bleed for my art.


btw, "whatever leads to joy" is a line from a poem I heard on the radio a few days ago... not sure title of poem or author, but the line stuck in my head & I hope I'm not breaking any copyright laws by using it for a painting!
