Crap. My computer died. Or something like that. Seems that way this morning.
I can post from my phone, like this, but it's a hassle.
I will blog/post pics at Instagram, to fill the gaps, for a bit, until I (hopefully) resolve the issue without too much ado and $. My Instagram feed is in the sidebar. You can see it without signing up. Hope to be back here soon. Mostly I am worried about my photos and files. Which of course I did not back up recently.
The Circle was made using this method. (which I don't use anymore, choosing a more eco-friendly method of resist dyeing) It was a bit tricky with the size and the ragged woven edges. I did a bit of design mending.
I've collaged a few of my dyed patchwork components. And tacked it next to something similar that was pieced. Seamed. I like when there is more than one way to consider. I like to lokk at that. No matter how hard I might try I can never do anything more than once. The same way. Actually I don't really try to do that. I do like to create settings. It's a kind of PlaceKeeping. Bases for going through. I feel beasts arriving.
I just noticed the sharp pain is gone. I now hold a dull ache in the background.
Blue is a color. Blue is a feeling. I wonder how that came to be.
Reconsidering Spaced out as a base for space then.
Working with one of those dyed bases here. And the nine from here. For now. Thinking about creating a pieced version of this base idea as well. And then maybe some other ways, there might be so many. I like this version of space. Divided by what is, a sense of order floating in it. Instead of harem cloth I used a small cotton print behind the thin dyed cloth. For the stabilizing layer. I like starry effect, blurred, like in a fog. There are many ways to play with this format. There is the center, the sense of windows, the spaces in between. Connecting the squares like dots, horizontally, vertically. All ways like a star. Well, shall we?
Note to self: A base, the field of space we choose to work within gives context to the story unfolding. Or sometimes the context can be the whole story. A not so blank slate. A welcome mat. Oh ha. I'm back!
Yesterday. This one is a new square sun, but really, more importantly, brings me back to my dyed patchwork experiments. I think these components are bridging something in a way. They are a departure contained in the safety of the box I hide in. They bring new form.
I love this one really. Where it started and how the warm center is holding and how it radiates outward with some random going. How the star points formed but really they are more like wind. How the corners are not cornered at all. How sun and star are crossing over in my mind. How it might be appearing or disappearing.
Note to self: You are all over the place. Can this be teaching?
See you on the other side. Breathe. Vote. Wine. Go Down to the Sea. Breathe.
