I realized, in re-reading my last post, that “you” may not be like me. You may not have walls hung with art. And maybe you don’t notice the outdoors – the dawn and sunset. And even if you do, you might be too busy to pay attention, to take it all in. Life for many these days is very fast and very full. How about a reprieve?
By contrast, the art I make takes a lot of time to make – “glacial speed” by contrast to most art forms and certainly to anything done on the internet. And even when I’m putting it together, right up until it’s hung, the colors are muted. Will all the time and effort be worth it? Will the colors sing? And will those colors make the heart sing? Slowly I build the piece, stitch by stitch. . .
