Weekly Collage


It felt good to get into the studio and work on this weekly piece. 'Contentment' was definitely what I felt while I worked and watched Wimbledon. I started with a study in black and white but couldn't leave it alone so I framed with a hand-dyed fabric and added heavy orange quilting lines.

Living consciously...

Think of a time when you have chanced into being at the right place at the right time, somehow creating change, making a difference.

I have a few "big" make a difference moments that I recall but I hold some of the "smaller" moments more dear. In the same spirit as random acts of kindness, I believe that if we all lean into making a difference in even the smallest ways, we might just elevate the human condition and make it better. Could happen - certainly doesn't hurt.

I really like the negative spaces in this piece. Like that border, too.

This is a great piece! The straight vertical lines and wavy horizontal suggest a skyline or bridge with water. I think the border adds to it as well as the orange echo quilting. I think it would be stark with out it.

Orange seems to be a color you like lately..
