Morphing began here

The first of my Morph Series, this piece was an extension of my ribbon pieces – Up Draft and Down Force.

Although I’ve often said that I will take my inspiration wherever I can find it, I never expected to find it at a party in a bowl of potpourri.

But that is truly what inspired this piece – a small bright green mysterious organic curly-q of unknown substance and origin.  Was it originally vegetable,  animal or mineral?  All I knew was that the shape was intriguing and contained many of my favorite rhythmic “c” and “s” curves.  I had to have it!  And my friends, although looking at me askance, were delighted to indulge my seeming insanity.
