Since then I have only completed one piece that fulfills that mandate. Beginning with Time. Side tracked by bubbling ideas, I've made smaller pieces ( Starry Night. Yin Yin ) that are ideal for group exhibitions,
When I was invited to teach a design workshop at Fibrearts Newfoundland based on the meditation panels of the circle project , I went into a flurry of producing art works that expanded on the stitches we used. These 'samples' show how basic stitches and simple design principles can be used to express an original voice.
Earth Ark and Layers of Time. To show a different way to use it, I made a murmuration of stitch. (above on right)
Precious Water I worked up a whole cloth piece from organic cotton and commercial batiks. It a-waits finishing.
Mended World. It still needs to be completed.
If I were younger and the days were longer, I believe that I would say yes more often to teaching.
