This piece "Silver Ladder" is one of two works inspired by my writing and reading about Labyrinths, meditation trails and images from antiquity. The fabric collage and stitching are almost obscured by layers and layers of oil pastel and joint compound. The silver leaf is a shiny contrast to shades of dull pink, red and yellow. In low light this piece has a glow that I really like.
Great weekend...cool , a little too cool for me but not cool enough to keep the tourists away. The pull of the Boardwalk and beaches too great to discourage weekenders or day trippers. Monday, Deena and I worked on the exchange of my summer clothes from winter and chose items for Goodwill or for consignment...almost done and I'm already feeling lighter! We also had a great day just being together and catching up!
I looked over my schedule for the week and Thursday is my only full day for studio work...not good. I must stay serious about setting more time aside for work...it's impossible to develop if I'm always in a start and stop position. As I've gotten older I'm plain weak and stupid after 7pm. I love my studio...right in the center of the house just like in my heart...materials, journals...love them all.
