Elena Stamberg’s thread drawing on organza, “Atmospheric” beautifully captures the soft, calmness of a beach scene. The transparent, white cloth gives the piece a soft, airy feel that calms the mind. The dotted blue squares represent the bright blue sky above the horizon while the green lines beneath them show the motion of the waves. As you look at this piece, your eyes slowly follow the path of the green thread. At the bottom, gold thread is woven in a close wavy pattern to represent the sand. Because this piece is so calming, it is easy to imagine it in your bedroom for when you need to escape to a tranquil place. It takes no time at all to become lost in the beautiful scene.
