As the ancient story goes: Honi the circle drawer drew circles in the sand and then when standing within the circle: higher worlds would enter, a receiving of a holy presence. When the weather warms a little I plan on taking a stick and going to the beach. After I draw my circle I will stand in the center and I'm sure I will feel the profound space. Of course, I believe that space is everywhere but it will be special to follow the ancient story.
These center cloth circles were created using the flour paste resist method and it was an effort that takes hours of drying time and even after applying the fabric paint ... more drying time. After drying time comes the messy job of rinsing off the flour paste so it is with great anticipation to see the finished results. I so love these circles that I left them alone, I didn't add beads but rather stitched around them.
Onto another project of ancient entrances, doorways and thresholds but first the necessary studio clean up! So far this year has been rich with three new pieces in this series as well as the fun of participating in the search for Roy G Biv!! I'll post Y on March 20th!
