I finished hooking “Moss” late tonight. I purposely put off typing this blog post till it was finished! There is no excuse for it not being finished long before this. But there you go. I started it in September of 2016 and finished it in April 2017. That is pretty slow going for me. Though I did manage to get this website up and running in there.
“Moss” is, like “Dancing Tree”, an actual tree along the shoreline of Victoria, BC, this time down in the Oak Bay area. We stopped at a viewpoint nearby to gaze out at the ocean under leaden gray skies. It did rain eventually, as it is wont to do on Vancouver Island in the Fall. But my, I do love Vancouver Island!
I’m taking a break from hooking rug until we are back from South Korea. Who knows what kind of inspiration I’ll find there and what direction it will take my work.
I notice while I am very interested in nature, I am often more interested in man’s interaction with nature. My prairie canola fields under the bright blue skies, the children in a quinzhee or playing in a mud puddle, parks here in the city, a tree in full autumn foliage with a garage roof poking into the frame, a planted garden sprouting. Hmm…something to think about. I may end up re-writing my artist statement.
On the business side of things, I dropped off my business books this week so the accountant could do my taxes for me.
I’ve also had a magazine express an interest in writing about my work. But we shall see. The last time this did not pan out, so no more information unless it does! They did send a few questions to ask me. I’m hoping they rewrite my answers and don’t publish them verbatim!
