Yesterday’s Heart was so Sure a piece in the ever growing Sanity series that suddenly came together just yesterday. I went back to find a loose note to self I remember so clearly. But I can never find exactly where it is kept. So I wrote it down again. Because I am right here, today, chasing it in a new way and also trying to redefine how heart is slowly becoming a personal symbol apart from the mainstream sugar. And […]
Cloth seems to have a memory. The kind we have. But actually cloth does have it’s own kind of memory. Retaining a lot about how it was handled, worn and rescued. Loved. Ha! Like us then… I finally “finished” this one. Because it feels like enough. Even though it seems like I could mend it into being forever. In Memory of our Michelle. I notice how my eyes come to rest after a while, on the Karma-Patch. There is true […]
Sometimes, trying to explain is the most difficult part. There is often what seems like a disconnect between hand and mind. That is the bridge we need to build. And keep in good repair. The truth is in the going. And the value is in the acceptance of of how it might go. The creative act is not outside of you. Art does not create itself. An image does not form of it’s own accord.

I was playing with paper folding earlier this year.
I found the original artwork for the Most Unusual (Skitch Skatch) Rabbit. 1971? I am noticing how I ultimately used a lot of my drawing style, that is how it informed my cloth work. You see I am interested in crossover, not really mixed media. I always divided my backgrounds into “patches” of color. The base layer. And the dots, stippling, became the thread beads. I am not sure how to Be Here at this point. Is “Cloth Whispering” going […]
Heart. I had been considering a series for Valentine’s Day, My love Isn’t Perfect. But not too much new work is happening at the moment. Deep winter is more work than anticipated. Now thinking My Love Is Old. No holiday association. I’m gathering thoughts on how to continue here. So that my heart remains in it. These last days, I have simply been practicing how to be here. Posting to figure out what might work. I think I need another […]
