One Word Challenge: Balance

Our assignment in my mixed-media class was ‘a bird, a rock and a letter’.

a Bird, a Rock, a Letter

a Bird, a Rock, a Letter

After a sleepless night with the refrain ‘a bird, a rock and a letter’ constantly running through my head, I spent the night and next morning sketching frantically. One of my morning sketches had this image of a seagull balanced on one foot on a standing stone that was balanced on a red letter ‘L’…

Why ‘L’? I’m not sure. Maybe it was the only letter that would balance with a bit of personality.

Plus I’m pretty sure that I was being influenced by the balancing rock poster I saw with the Chinese character for ‘rock’ tilted on its side.

And of course the whole thing would be centred. What’s with me and centering? Am I afraid to venture out into the wild world of assymmetry at this point in my life? Or am I craving balance?
