"Glistening Thread"

12"x18", mottled painted stamped cotton, oil treated paper ... momigami, stenciled fabric, machine and hand stitching, hanging glass beads, digital photo of Dead Sea scroll .."Jeremiah"..on organza and screen printed Hebrew alphabet letter ...Aleph.
I wrote about my new direction on Dec.9th posting and here is my first effort in my story of the scribe and ancient holy writings. All of us artists accept the precepts of art making ...structure, unity and consistency and for me,  at this time, I need "story" to fully feel I've taken the piece to its completed form. Always surprised at what I 'think' the journey will be like and what actually shows up ...the mystery of my own artist life.

  4. Elegant! Love your approach a lot. (didn't know that you live in Santa Cruz. I lived on the Monterey Peninsula for over 30 years. we could have met up. :( I've only been back once in the last 8 years. Miss it.) Happy New Year!

  5. Thank you Gail! I've lived in the Santa Cruz area since 1995 ... ! I live near the harbor. Living close to water and forest feeds my soul but then ever so often I wish for the desert... ?!
