Elemental Night

Elemental Night by Candace Hunter

Fire, Water, Earth, Air.
That’s what it’s all about.
Elements make up our world.
We dance with them inside and out.
They color our dreams with stories and magic.
Fire, Water, Earth, Air.
Tonight, we shall Dream.

My Thoughts on the Work

I built Elemental Night from inspiration. I wanted to use my Dye Later process to build a piece about Elemental forces. I asked for help from my Muse, and my Muse delivered. I built Elemental Night and Elemental Day in tandem. The work flowed beautifully until the end. As so often happens, the work on both felt incomplete. I looked at them and sat with them. Then, I got what I. Needed.

The final touch was inspired by Will Mitchel, who suggested a technique for looking at my work differently. That made all the difference. With his help, I saw the last lines I needed to see, the elemental line that connects Elemental Night with Elemental Day.
