Reality and abstract: Flower Friday
Well this is the revelation (confirmation for all the clever ladies who love to guess what abstracts actually are!) It is indeed one of my crocheted mandalas with a structured glass bowl, strategically placed to create the abstract I had wanted to see.
I chose a flower from my balcony-garden that went with the crochet work and have used the same glass bowl upturned to show you how it was done.
Even if we know, or think we know, what an abstract is, it doesn't make it any less abstract. Anything can be abstract if we move in very closely and choose our viewpoint very carefully!
