The last week has been a bit chaotic.
Free is Wild!
But now that Feel Free is open, and many outdoor chores have been completed, I think I can finally roll back into going at a more normal pace.
The reaction to my new open teaching has been warm and welcoming. Thank you. I will just do it all openly, including building the resource, not knowing exactly how it will go but trusting it will become. You, as users, might alert me to anything that is not working over there. WE might make it all OK.
With the season's color change beginning I pulled out a few colored moons I made way back, inspired by the shaped resist I learned from Glennis. These are cotton. I use an over-dye technique, the fabric clamped between two quarters to keep the dye from penetrating, leaving the original color of the fabric in the circle part. Dipped in indigo. The reason this is so good for me is because I have so much small colored commercial scrap here. From working in the textile industry. Some of which I like a lot better when there is just a little bit of it showing. And when I made these I was growing my own indigo. So over-dyeing like this, it makes sense for me. If you start with white cloth, you need to dye twice to achieve this. (Not to mention you might have to go buy cloth). I always like the possibility of having a full spectrum to work with.
I have added a COLOR page to Feel Free. And I have begun to gather some of the audios and videos that relate to that. The RAINBOW has always been part of my reasoning when composing with color. There is a category here on the blog for spectrum/rainbow as well.
So there are walnuts and pomegranates soaking, patchwork waiting to be stitched and color on my mind. And I'll roll into it.It seems, really, to me, that this blog is about to become the never ending Diaries series. And passwords have become a thing of the past. One place. One purpose. What a relief.
