Found this journal page from my last trip to England
As you might guess I found it very crowded
Cars everywhere and parked in every nook and cranny
and of course people everywhere too
Where I live 4 cars on the road is a traffic jam
For the last month I've been mulling over a commitment
to work on a series of tree bark pieces.
Once upon a time I would have jumped right in stitching textures
but my work has changed and I'm resisting that temptation.
How can I create a piece of stitching inspired by bark but not recreating it?
So after seeing that England doodle
I'm drawing marks on tracing paper with bark photographs underneath
trying to remember not to trace the image
but work on stitches that might mark the bark.
Could become a mess if I use too many different stitches
but I like the concept.
Still mulling things over
More doodling to be done
What size would fit?
Natural dyed cloth would be appropriate.
At this stage I have to allow percolating time.
