meanwhile

 
Dear journal
It's been a week since I last wrote.
I've been working at collecting images to upgrade my website so it has been busy.
This blog rarely posts my finished work.
If I want to share finished work, I need an organized site.
But it is computer work and that gives me a neck ache.
Seeing artwork in real life (irl) is so much better.
All this week I've stayed indoors.
I've started to use the stationary bike again, after a long break from it.
The bike is in my studio so that while I do my pedaling,
I am able to look at what's on the design wall.

Penny and I are having another show together, and we've started planning more seriously.
I've been making brand new work for that, and feel happy. 
 
I'm  also getting to the edges of this sunny-rainy piece. 
It is becoming distorted.
I pull the threads very snugly to encourage the distortion
I stitch around thoe velvet rainy-mushroom shapes three times
 
 
 Not sure if I love it anymore.
 

meanwhile the world goes on
meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscape
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers....

the images of the sweaters with holes are from the book, Habitus by Ann Hamilton.

  1. The long vertical cloth is stunning in its subtlety ...

    and thank you for voicing: "not sure if I love it anymore" ... so often how I feel

  2. As ever your creations are wonderful, how I wish I could actually see them in person,
    that not being possible I treasure your posts and find my breathing slowly settling and shoulders relaxing as I read.
