farewell and adieu


"Backyards 1" will be on it's way to a private collection very shortly. I spent some time this morning taking  a lot of good pictures by way of record and memory keeping and right away I was reminded about the value of working loose & relaxed and the enjoyment that came with the making of this one from the gift of the vintage cloth, the experimental dyeing to the quick and dirty designing that fell together without a whole lot of fuss or angst.

Love your work. Agree with you the work done while we are not worried about the result comes out best.

What a gem. The stitching is so evocative. I love the way it trails off....

You know I love this piece. You sound torn about letting it go. "Parting is such sweet sorrow.... " I know it will be treasured, and appreciated as a work of fine art.
