In The Memory Garden #1

The beginning of a new series of textile constructions.  A sandwich of ideas born from strips of rags.  In the Memory Garden #1. Inspired by memory and how what we remember affects us in a myriad of ways.  Details remembered, details lost.  Sometimes a jumble of images that don’t always make sense. Memories which are […]

Dart Under The Red Moon

A bit of this and that for “Through My Window” at Art*Journal*Journey.  Over the USA Labor Day weekend holiday I spent some time looking into the window in my solar oven and cooking up some plants. Goldenrod, coffee too, iron gives a greenish hue. I went looking at the things I found on my walk… […]
