Sweet days off and back to be with the animals and farm when Irene gets here. I had big plans this morning to catch up on my bookkeeping, but as I was walking with the dogs, my head started to fill with images for a streaming piece.
I started the piece based on the idea that we all have something unique to offer the world. When we truly open ourselves up to it, it comes through us and connects us to something greater than ourselves and touches those around us. (Greatness at my fingertips). I laid some thin pieces of fabric over the main piece thinking it offers some depth and dimension. I can see working with this more, having a collage effect.
I had something new in mind when I started working on this piece. A few weeks ago a friend was in my studio and saw one of my streaming pieces. She said she would like to have it made into a pillow. She’s a big believer in functional art. I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not about I saw it until I saw it on her couch. It looked like it had always been there.
So I decided to make some new streaming pillows for the October Functional Art Show. This is my first one. I’m curious to see what it will look like when it’s a pillow.
