- After years of inactivity I am ready to begin recording my creative searching again. I’m practicing “art” purposely every day. I’m paying attention, listening and making marks. It feels good.
The thought of insects creating fiber
fiber to protect
during a most vunerable stage
a coat a shield a soft and strong garment
I adore silk. I like raw and knubby silk the most. lately my friend and I have taken out our frame and
returned to painting silk.
dye meets fabric and begins to move..through the fibers
stopping only when it meets a resist
becomes captured within its determined space.
feelings flow through me into the brush and are released in color upon insect cloth.
I’m enjoying free form knitting/felting. While working on “Sea Nest”, I had a compulsion to form it and shape it. it was exciting like looking at a huge waterfall or knowing if I run a little more I will get the prize!
Another project that I am working on has the effect of calming me bringing my focus to the present, or layering behind abstract active thinking. The mitered squares are formed formed with “Noro Silk Garden” yarn.
Amazing how I get a thrill out of this
silky fiber each time it changes colors.
variety creates satisfaction.
I enjoy a variety of foods, people,colors,…
I need one color to appreciate the other.
Variegated yarn = Chameleon yarn
Entering Into an open inventatioal art show. This is my first showing of my fiber art. I love this part of me and loved creating it.
You write it on
and inevitable falls
You paint it in
and across star-stung skies
and in the tattoo
You stitch it into
hearts, tiny etched
and readily available
and we forget
and we cheapen it
and we take it
to give it.
and we’re found
gently loosed and unbound;
but we forsake it,
to live it.
