Strange Coincidence

A funny little thing happened recently.
I was wondering why my new fabric art piece titled "Red Tube Worms 2" was receiving so many views lately on my Flickr page. My digging unveiled a porn site called red tube. Now I understand why the piece is receiving so much attention! It pops up everytime people do image searches for the porn site.

My naive ego was thinking I'd maybe hit on a new trend and was attracting art enthusiasts interested in the subtle beauty of calcareous tube worms. Alas, no. I'm not going to rename the piece though: let them stumble upon it!

I adore your art work. You have such skill. The colours and textures are stunning. I came across one of your pieces on Pinterest, the one with the purple Allium seed heads. I love textiles, antique ones too. I am an antique dealer living in England. I wish that I could create something with needle and thread or sewing machine and thread! Keep up the good work, you have a fabulous talent.

I love this piece Kirsten. You never know, there may be a cross over between lovers of porn and lovers of textile art. You may have tapped into a huge market that the rest of us don't know about!

This is great. I thought I should post and let you know that I came upon it researching actual tube worms! So maybe a few hits are from tide pool geeks. I am also interested in textile art. ;)
