the river beneath

I'm always taken care of by my work.
You let go of your own idea and let the work go where it needs to go.
And that's sometimes very uncomfortable.
One learns to linger in discontent and not be judgmental, but to have faith.
Kiki Smith

  1. Oh my goodness!! I love the snippet of your quilt above but when I linked to your New Work and saw the full quilt, well I find it's just glorious! How could anyone's spirits not be lifted by the colour and content here.

  2. Great quote - perfect support for this work whose beauty has lingered in bits and now the whole because you did "let go of your own idea and let the work go where it needs to go." Frustrates every time. Works every time. xo

  4. Wonderful! Your stitching across all the pieces really pulls everything together. I can't say which is more entertaining to look at--the piecing or the stitches. I enjoy both and the unlikely combination tells a whole new story.

  8. Congrats on the David Kaye Gallery news! Tawny Capon, an artist here on Gabriola, is also with David Kaye. And Dorothy Caldwell too, I believe. Great company for you to be in!
