Creating an Environment

This is what I've been doing. Borrowing the reaction to an old painting
then building an environment to hold my response writing down a child's story. Asking where it happened, who was there and what it looked like.

A Little More Light

Let go of thoughts and energy too heavy to carry forward.
Lighten my load and lifting my heart.

Focus on each day and new stories woven thru it.
Look for peace, work for it.

Lion cubs

This Medieval illustration caught me by surprise. I was sure it
was a gruesome killing scene at first. Then I saw it was the parental care
of the cubs. Not sure why it moved me but I felt it needed a frame
and so I made one. Fierce animals parenting fiercely. Tough love.

Sometimes I get bogged down. Something needed to go forward.
I found some  movement here but this may be stuck in the literal story.

Insight on my design habits

I trained as a jeweler. While making
this mosaic - like frame I could see my training has
kept me involved in making a setting with a focal point in a field..
The halo in this ancient cave painting fascinated me....
very much like a beautiful gem stone.

When I saw this photo it hit me - My training had locked
me into one way of design. Symmetry is OK but
I've discovered the power in lack of balance thru cloth making. Huh.
My favorite cloths aren't balanced but off kilter a bit. A little unbalanced.

Winter is dropping on us like a cold, wet anvil.
Good thing I have my puppy to remind me that fun
and mischief  come in all seasons.

My new pre-wash cycle.

New bark alarm for reflected dogs.

What I see when I look and love.
Stay warm; sleep with a dog.
