Knotted Up

I hate that feeling. Knots in your stomach.
Like being stripped to the bone, feeling raw, but you keep smiling anyway because that's all you can do is push forward.
Can't say anything either. Guess that's where the expression, "Bite your tongue" came from. I love art. I mean, I really love art. Being able to express all that through some knotted up polymer clay and a couple of collages is so gratifying. Whew, feel so much better now.

Oh my, Marlene, what will you think of next?! Knotted polymer(!) and with so much expression super-imposed on the collages. "Stripped to the bone", "feeling raw" and not able to say anything are feelings we all know. How neat to see them expressed this way. You are amazing!

I really love that last image, really love it.
You said a mouthful there, sister. Bite your tongue. And I love art, too.

Thank you Barbara and Rhonda. I almost didn't post this because I thought it might be a bit too much. Now, I am glad I did. Thank you both for your wonderful comments.
