“Blossom by blossom the spring begins” – Algernon Charles
In Massachusetts, winter is just coming to an end. There have been especially sunny days in the past few weeks where we can practically smell spring in the air, and the drab, brown and gray landscape is becoming speckled with colors. The trees are budding, the first flowers are blooming, and the grass is getting greener. In Newport, Rhode Island, where we’re hosting seminar this week, there are close to one million daffodils that have pushed their way up and are blossoming, creating a landscape that is bursting with vibrant yellow. It feels in tune with the tiles from Project Pack 20 - Blossoming Tangles.

Spring is the season that promises new beginnings and possibilities. Nature reminds us that only change is constant. Just like tangles, landscapes are an evolving art piece: greens appear amongst the browns, yellows and pinks blossom among the greens, and so on, creating a palette of ever-changing textures and colors. It is like our tiles. First all we have are some lines, some orbs. But slowly they grow, gain texture, and bloom into something beautiful: something to admire and appreciate.
Oscar Wilde wrote that “A flower blossoms for its own joy”. We hope that with the Blossoming Tangles Project Pack, all of you tangled for your own joy! As you created stroke by stroke, through each stage of creation, we hope you treasured the bloom, the full beauty, of all that you create.
