The prompt this week on http://studiofriday.org/ is Orange. This ornament was thus created!
Beyond Halloween and Autumn pallettes, orange is a passionate color associated with the second chakra, emotion and sexual energy.
I love to hang ornaments around my studio all year; they are festive, joyful decorative elements that bring dimension, interest and meditative points upon which to gaze. The marigolds atop the ornament bring me to the intersection of art and nature, a place I love. I will likely allow the flowers to simply dry on top of the ornament. Should they continue to add to the piece, I may preserve and attach them.
