I start early in the morning and continue through the day, into the evening.
I have an exhibition in Toronto in October and have designed 8 new pieces, none of them small.
Four are made with old linen domestic damask..
I think that the title of the exhibition will have the word cloud in it.
I am still inspired by Luce Irigarary's poem
especially the line "how do I make earth out of air, and protect the cloud in me?"
I hesitate to show them here actually.
Isn't there a rule somewhere that artists must keep the work secret until the big unveil at the opening?
But then what would I show in my blog?
It also will document the advance of spring and summer here in my yard.
Today it's the middle of May and the new green all over is really fresh.
I share this lovely portrait of my mother Pauline in her mid-30's.
Mother's day was her very favourite holiday.
She didn't allow us to celebrate her birthday.
It is also my father's birthday today. He turns 94.
He's been alone for ten years now.
I feel as if I have a cloud of love in me.
