To begin this series I was taken up with my journal writing as a launching device. I wrote about white (series is about color) and all the memories connected to white such as clean crisp sheets, white oil based semi-gloss paint, white ceramic tile but as I began this piece it quickly became a mixture of grays, bone and tea stains. So I followed the mixed lead and white will just show up another time. These colors became important as the marks on marks of bleached leaves, beads worn and missing with gray medallions hardly noticed ... a wind blown structure revealed?
I'm still trying to sew on the sewing machine in free style and need to keep at it. I'm excited about exploring the colors as memory and I intend to use this blog as more of a sharing place. Not sure how many people are stopping by so I'm feeling fairly safe in using this space as a way to dig deeper and express my findings. Lots of colors out there so here I go. I will always have a connection to archaeology, memory, nature and I believe fabric will see me through this exploration.
