Clouds, cracks and the red boat


 Sandra Brownlee making her mark while India Flint and Kelly McKaig look on

Sandra taught me that




as well as in the paper that I worked with yesterday.


The thought of each piece of paper containing a cloud seems to fit perfectly 


So here's to clouds, cracks, light and red boats.

    1. I remember the feeling I had looking at the photo of the red boat that you first posted from Newburgh. And then to find myself standing on at the river's edge, looking at the boat...so small and simple yet such a powerful symbol...it was surreal and incredible. And continues to be.

  6. Oh. Wow. Not very coherent but I can feel the wonder and the power of the work you are doing based on the wonder and the power of the time away…so many wonderful thoughts and inspirations - I love the notion of the clouds and the cracks…precious. You could explore that for a very long time...

    1. I have a feeling that I'll be exploring this for quite a while. Clouds, cracks, light, red boats, paper, paint, stitch, boro, wabi sabi...it all just fits.

    1. Too funny Ersi! I read your first line as "cloud cracking envy" at first. Either way, it brought a smile. I knew the week in Newburgh would effect my work, but thought it would take a bit before it did. It feel very good to be doing this work and the ideas are flying. Enjoy!
