week 9--cold

Two weeks after "hot" and I pull this one. Again, I prefer to show (or at least TRY to show) the concept of the word without creating a pictorial piece. No polar bears or icicles or snowflakes, though I originally wanted to represent the sweeps of super-thin ice on a frosty window. I chose cool colors grading out from the coldest, iciest core, 1/2-inch squares of fabric fusible-webbed down onto Timtex, then embellished with hand-sewn iridescent beads in shades of ice-blue and -purple.

It looks exactly like a frosty window. Love it. It also reminds me of the way a camera blurs lights into soft spots. Nice!
