I like this double form. The double wishing star. I am thinking it might work for many things, a compound nested symbol. Something framed by itself. It gives the form a kind of depth. Perspective.
Personal symbols are a picture language and life is complicated.
I love that the symbol is expanding in this way, we all need wishing stars right now.
My cat, Noortje often sits in the same way as Soul-O.
I love how he does that, make him seem so human
Soul-O and his perch…colored pencils (((sigh)))…Morning Glories!! We had them at the old place, always loved them and these are really so beautiful…star holding star, stitch after stitch…to visit here is calmness and beauty.
morning glories have taken a long time to take hold here. finally.
love experiencing the evolution of your personal symbols. that double wishing star takes me into another dimension. feels kaleidoscopic. something about an array of sharpened pencils that says, “let’s play!” must be soul-o’s thoughts also! x
I want to draw.
soul-o’s beautiful watching eye, leaf hearts and a nestling star. Perfect
a nice quiet day here
Soul – o is too cute 💙
Double stars 🙌🏻
It adds a weight, ‘Everything is okay, I am here and I know what is going on.’
it does add weight, nice observation
I have a thought of tree rings
not sure which image I like best here— Soul-O & the Home Nest (comfort), those morning glories against the dark background (Drama!) and always—-the stitching and your amazing interpretations of all things textile!! Each pic as I scroll….I whisper, “Oooooo!”
I just got up and began taking pictures. I am still at it because every thing is beautiful!
I prefer simple forms — in my quilting and in my life — but always seem to add complexity to them. Maybe it’s some embroidery in a corner, buttons along seams, building on colors, adding embellishments. But it’s complexity that I add, not that comes running at me from elsewhere. Your double star doubles the inspiration.
sometimes complicated can seem simple. or the other way around.
Peaceful and beautiful pictures today! Thank you for the wave of peacefulness they brought to my mind and heart! I love your snail sculpture!
oh that snail, I have a few. I love snails and the stories they conjure
If you love snails, you may watch the film “Microcosmos, le peuple de l’herbe” by Jacques Perrin. French film but the pictures speak by themselves. He filmed the most beautiful love scene of 2 snails
I had to go back and look for the snail. Then I quoted that last sentence to my son, who texted me as I was reading here, and he immediately knew the name of the movie.
Complicated has been one of my go to words for the last year and a half. I like that it is descriptive but doesn’t show an opinion one way or the other. It’s usually a word everyone can agree upon even in disagreement about other things. And we all have wishes, maybe a double wishing star makes space for more than one person to wish? Love your morning glories.
thank you for these thoughts!
and yes morning glories just make me smile
picture language…universe al
it is really interesting and then even more if you consider leaving words behind…
