She Was Only Waiting ...

Found on Flickr

She was only waiting for her pounding heart to settle down

I recently came across this beautifully minimalist embroidery by Michelle Kingdom on Flickr, which she has entitled: "She was only waiting for her pounding heart to settle down". This title is enough to catch my attention, because more than anything, I love when art pieces tell me a story.

I talked to Michelle about her inspiration for another of her embroideries last year, but I think I'd rather not know too much about this one. I like to think about the girl in the embroidery and what made her heart pound - is she in love? Is she upset or angry? Excited? About what? These questions will keep me looking at Michelle's work for a long time, wondering and speculating.

Visit Michelle Kingdom on Flickr to see more of her wonderful work.
