“The colors are like a memory, but I can’t say of what.  Maybe it’s feeling not a thing” I texted Suzy when she sent me a photo of her new shawl.  “Yes, it almost hums, the yellow.” She wrote back.

That strip of reds, pinks and warm gray is the color of oak leaves when they turn in the fall.  And the black stripe is Issachar’s wool.  Suzy had the yellow wool dyed this year.  It comes from her angora goats, Annie, Alice, Ruth and Lucy.

The bold accents pulled me in, but the more I look at it, the more colors I see. They are subtly spun and knit together.  The colors are blended like paint mixed on a pallet.  I marvel at the nuance of them.  The shawl looks more painted than knit.

The Painted Shawl is as grand as a landscape and as intimate as a single leaf.

Each of Suzy’s shawls is a unique creation.  She washes them in a natural solution so they are extra soft.  They are made mostly of the mohair from her own goats, but she also adds llama fiber and in this shawl, wool from my sheep, Issachar who is a mix of Cormo, Romney, and Blueface Leicester.

  1. I am in love with this shawl. Unfortunately, living in South Africa with our Mikey mouse money, it is beyond my pocket to purchase it.
    All my best thoughts to the lucky one who claims it .
    Btw, I envy all those people who purchase your artwork Maria. If only … . I so admire what you produce!

    Kindest regards Diane.

    1. One of the things that I love about having a blog is that so many people get to see everything I post on it things even if they don’t own them. That’s so much what I love about museums. I recently was left a message by someone who bought one of my magnets. She said she doesn’t own a lot or desire to, but she bought one of my Heron magnets, because it is small and it’s a way for her to enjoy the image. I like that idea, it will keep me making small things. Enjoy the pictures Diane!
