This should be a Stitch-A-Long post. These last three weeks have been hectic, and I just couldn’t get to stitch. However, there will be lots of wonderful stitching to see at the other members of the group. Follow the links to see their work.
My partner has been back in hospital, after a fall. He is okay, but hospital visiting and caring takes time….and emotion and energy.
So I have used my pockets of time to get ready for the library exhibition, the first of two that I have coming up in July and August. I think I am on track. The meeting with the organiser this week will help me work out whether I am right.
Details of the exhibition for my Melbourne readers:
14th July to 8 August
Ascot Vale Library
You are welcome to just drop into the library and have a look, but they will be for sale too. As you can see the works will be up for quite a while.
There are lots of you who won’t be able to make it 😪. I will treat you to the paintings by publishing them, one a day for the next few weeks. Here’s the first one:
My works are interpretations of the worlds between land and sea. This one is part of the mangroves series, which were created by tearing up paper.
I decided that my old watercolour landscape painting would be perfect to tear up and then glue back down again. You can see some tree trunks in the shapes. I created the background paper, the sandy sea, with acrylic paint on photocopy paper.
The work is A3 size, and looks good in its blond wood frame.
I respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land o which I live – the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung People of the Kulin Nation, their spirits, ancestors, elders and community members past and present.
