It is that time of year, isn't it, when we've packed away the Christmas things, we've cleaned a bit maybe sorted some things for the second hand store, and we turn to finishing some projects that have been languishing for a while.
This one I started about a year ago one day when I just wanted to play, cutting strips and sewing them on, not even using fusible. The background is one of my Shibori prints , measuring about 9 1/2 by 14". It's been stuck on my design wall ever since. And I've been stuck as to how to proceed.
I have a general idea of the mood. My inspiration came from a particular part of the trail later in the day when the moon is in the sky and the low sun is casting beautiful soft colours across the sky.
I just haven't been sure how to proceed. Now, I have a few ideas. One thing I'm going to do is trace it or print out a few black and white copies and play with some ideas on paper.
Maybe a moon-- low or high in the sky--was thinking of an owl, but maybe not, some foreground brush, some pretty snowflakes....
I ponder these things on such a day as this when I've gotten out on the trail and I need to stretch out with heat and ice. Like the turtle I will get to it eventually. Like I said in my last post, 'acceptance'.
