When stitching on this piece nowadays
What comes to mind is
Every Stone is an Island unto Itself
I also thought shoreline rocks would "swoosh" between them.
Spent a few days stitching swooshes.
Decided this weekend to undo all those swooshes
Spent two days so far unswooshing
Just going with the flow!
Thinking of adding hints of islands....
....on the distant horizon.
Just going with the flow.
With on piece coming to it's completion
Need to firm up plans on what to start next
Playing around with colours.
Just going with the flow
I learnt something this winter
In past winters I assumed snow tunnels we discovered
were made by mice.
It is the squirrels.
We watch this little bird food devil
slide down his tree
straight into a tunnel at it's base
and pop out of one of three
tunnel entrances at the base of the bird feeder!
Happy Birthday Mark!
I hope one thing leads to another in your studio today.
And as Peter London says
in "No More Secondhand Art"
"... begin the initial phase with the open-ended statement
Let's see what happens"
