An Emotional Week (but that was the point...)

The lovely Leilani issued a challenge on Fiber Art Traders to create a series of five 5x5 abstract fiber pieces that reflected five emotions (which she chose). Since I've hit a bit of a dry spell, I thought this would be a good little project to get me back into the studio. Below are the results ... see what you think!

These pieces are wonderful! The last one is my favorite.

these are great - love quench a lot, feels like rain in summer to me and i could smell the hot pavement. but squish just made me laugh - brought to mind a memory of walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night, barefoot and half asleep, and stepping into a pile of cat puke. ok, maybe that's TMI!

I think these are fabulous Michelle, you've done a great job on all of them.

Great job expressing the emotions in such a small format. These have big impact. I think "Sorrow" is especially effective.
