musings on art, walks with the dog, life as it happens, in the slow lane
nice stitched panel. i love your treatment of the torn lace. you made it look as though it was meant to be that way.
This is very pretty and orderly. I love how the piece of gray trails off like and unfinished sentence. So nice, this is.
thanks Deanna: actually the lace was torn like this and I placed it where it belongsHi Nancy: yes orderly, usually I tend to get 'messy' but I wanted to keep this one as simple and calm as I could
stunning! I love the little criss-crossing stitches... and having read backwards from seeing another new composition, it occurs to me that they are companion pieces.I don't know if this is the side of me that longs for art to enable healing and redemption, but when I see this thing of beauty that you have made, right after reading your thoughts about chaos and existence, I can't help but wonder: can it really be that we are here for no special reason?
You do realise Dee that I don't Really Know either!!I make, because I have to, Have To...for me it's a way of facing/confronting loneliness, of being aware of the fact that we are basically alone ( as a person, a species, a planet etc)I am capable of happiness and suffering as much as the next human being, and I'm lucky in that I have found a way to more or less accept my duhkha (suffering: see Grace's post) through art and I am truly grateful for that and being able to share this with you is something that makes me even more grateful..and I feel less alone
this comment is very much involvedwith other posts before and after, so..is just where i thought i'dbegin..catching, up...but i occurs to me that WE looklike our cloths...and i mean ourphysical faces, the tenor of ourphysical beings...i love this cloth because youcall it Finished. and i like that.and i like it because it is very much a feeling of being complete, finished, yes, but also there is a feeling to it for me that it is asking questions, too.
Your work is beautiful. Reason you are here: Reason enough that you "had" to make this piece, and that I saw it and we both were moved by it. Sandi M.
hi Sandi: thank you for this comment! for reading my blog and taking time to consider my words and my work; luckily I don't think about the (lack of ) life's purpose too much, I just keep on going and besides what I and others make, I watch our two boys growing up and marvel at their 'own-ness' ; I suppose in a way both the having given birth to them and to my art touches on my mothering instincts, for more and more I have come to realise I make through feeling rather than thoughts, it is not something easily put into words, so I'll leave it at that.
