7 – Scary fun

March 13, 2020 By

One of my journal entries listing different aspects of fear brought me to the idea of amusement parks and the various ways people can laugh at a momentary fright.
I’ve been on a roller coaster once…on a dare…never again…being absolutely terrified isn’t for me. Apparently, lots of people do like being scared for fun; I wonder what is the psychological reason behind that. It’s a provocative thought for my art about fear.
I feel that I’m onto something for my next quilt, a way to combine bright colors, fun and being frightened in some believable way.
