New York’s THE Spot for Art Resources

I’m a native New Yorker and spoiled to the tee when it comes to being able to secure anything I want.  As an artist, I am simply loving it.

I just garbled up some great fabric for forthcoming projects this year.  I am in heaven!  Here’s what I got:

Loving the fabric which I use on wood serving as the foundation for my crocheted works.  Those tassels, hey, yah never know where or how they will show up.  Simply inspired right about now.

Luv Yah,

Introducing: “Purple Reign” Tree

When the great musician Prince transitioned, I felt compelled to create a tribute piece.  I created a swirling purple tree encompassing an abstract silhouetted side view of Prince’s hair with a tree bark reminder of his icon symbol.

I had the pleasure of introducing this oversized work as part of a wonderful new exhibit on Long Island, New York along with the works of several other talented artists.  Oh, how wonderful to share my “ROYALTY REIGN” with the company of others from The Creative Corner.

It was a glorious affair.  Another highlight in my continuing creative journey.

Opps! Went the Cactus

What a title, huh?

Well, here’s the backstory.  While in the midst of preparing for an exhibit this weekend, I was in the final stages of a piece.  I was sculpting my crocheted works into a cactus.  Yes, it was shaping up fine.

I was about to do the final adhering of the image when…daggone!…the work seemed to jump from my table and fall to the floor.  Now once it shifts, moves in anyway, I am unable to reproduce the same image again.   Thus, I have to begin from scratch.  Here’s that same crocheted piece now sculpted into a piece I now call “Simple Tree”.

Look very closely at the image and you will see it is the same twirls as the cactus.  It’s simply now ‘sculpted’ into a tree image. And, guess what?  I happened to like the tree imaging better.

What about you?

Mother’s Day Healing

Whew…what crazy months have gone by as I find myself in the new role of eldercare.  While mom is healing from a neck that was broken, I find ways to shift, ways to settle back into serenity. 

I was so overjoyed to find a rare moment to create and emerge into oneness with my art.  To mindfully slip away to refresh and meander into the stillness of a gloriously beautiful morn with my needle and yarn.

I took my studio work into the sun to finish this joyful new tree.  Ahh, new work in celebration of mom…
