I've been needing a new muse and I finally settled myself to creating one. My muses, as this one wear helmets (Norse warrior women) and usually have interesting hair styles. I keep a childlike approach as that appeals to me as inspirational. She stands before an open gate( A Dr. Seuss like gate) to guide me into new fabric work. This time she is outfitted with a candle for dark times. All this wrapped up in a heavy dose of courage, gratitude and probably hard work!
