Red. Unrest.

Why is it that, while ocean emits big quiet even during the worst of the storms, spider lilies manage to scream without making a sound at all.
The kind that stays in your ears and makes them ring every time you see a certain shade of red.

彼岸花は、物音一つたてずに叫ぶような存在感を発する。嵐で荒れる海に感じる巨きな静けさとは対照的だとふと考える。

Very red drawing is of spider lily petals, continuing study of the blossom for my upcoming dye piece. (What piece? View the previous dyed threads here.) It’s dimension is 54 x 38 cm and I did study until the surface began to tear.
Currently going through bouts of mini-overwhelm at the sight of the bold red challenge. Too late though, I’ve already seen too much (details).
