Frisky

My Feelings work continues with Frisky.  I had so much fun with this one.  And I love the colors!

When I think “frisky”, I think of kittens and puppies, of the old television series Happy Days where Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham would occasionally disappear upstairs because one or the other was feeling “frisky”, and of childhood play, particularly spinning in circles until we got so dizzy we collapsed on the lawn in fits of giggles.

We grow up.  We stop spinning.  We forget the euphoria that comes from simple play.  What if we took that feeling back and inserted a little friskiness into our every day?

Be silly.  Act goofy.  Re-invent an imaginary friend.  Do whatever natural thing works to lighten your mood.  Don’t worry about what other people think.

You’re the one who matters so matter to yourself and feel a little frisky!

Constructive criticism and comments are always welcome.  Please share your thoughts!

Next up: The next Feeling comes from the opposite side of the emotional spectrum.  This could get a little dark, but that’s okay because we can’t feel positive ALL the time, can we?


Info about my Feelings series: I interpret my random abstract doodles as emotions.  The guiding point is the outer boundary of the doodle.  The boundary evokes the feeling.  From there, I contemplate how to bring that particular feeling alive in fabric.
