Ferriswheel Friday.



Happy leap-day, everybody!

Last night I thought to myself, "you know what your blog needs, Michelle? More ferriswheels."

Obviously.

So I'm going to try to post a ferriswheel picture every friday. Some will be photos I've taken, some others have taken, some of my art, some from other artists. My ferriswheel research is pretty extensive.

I love ferriswheels. I've often been asked what that's all about. The attraction is not all that profound. I have always drawn pointy little wheel-like things, and over the years I have been attentive to objects that resemble the things I draw.

Today's ferriswheel picture was taken long ago, but the date on the image doesn't seem right. It was in the spring of 2000, I think. My best friend took this in Chicago, on Navy Pier. That's me, all blurry in a red hat.

Appropriately enough, I posted three ferriswheel pieces today in my Etsy store. Also a strange and wonderful ol' piece with doorknobs. Check it out!

Jerry Phillips gave me your blog. I went to Murray, but didn't know you until you came back with the grad students.

Have you seen this?

I am a textiles student and stumbled in here after visiting your etsy. All I can say is that I LOVE YOUR WORK. Divine. I love it so much. I love stitch, paper and cloth. I love text and I love photography. I get it, I really do. So thanks for the beautiful images. You must feel so proud. I would love to make work that makes someone react the way I did when I saw yours. One day for sure ... Have you checked out Danny Mansmith, American artist and cool guy.
