It began with this, what I have always felt was the story of your land, your place, you. As each new cloth comes, it still all comes back to this first cloth for me because the foundation of the story is here, the rest, expands...Marti

weaving of selves together

that's a beautiful artwork grace, with the tall wise treewoman standing there silently...k.

I flipped back to the beginning and yes, now she is a wise old woman teaching the story of the land. This is what I perceive, and why I like it so much.She looks wise and the land and sky have so much to tell and teach, and she is the narrator.

A wonderful piece...love the way you take inspiration and run with it.
I am so sad...when I went to sign up for the next workshop it was sold out, but I did make it for the third...will I see you there?

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

kaite and helen i need to write some words about this one. this blog was begun as a means of journaling spirit cloth and this
one is the crossroad of all that came before and all that might still come.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

mo~a i am sorry too. but yes,
the third. and that will be a
continuation.
if all goes as it might, i can
imagine taking Jude's workshops
forever. her knowledge of cloth
and her relationship with cloth
is enormous and feels never ending to me. i will look forward to you then and in the meantime, try to keep bringing things here.

Suzanna said...

Ah now I see her, your spirit woman over in the side bar...I'm glad to have a closer view. You capture something very rooted and wise.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

suzanna
very rooted.

Susan said...

This is wonderful, Grace. I Like her height, as tall as the trees reaching into the sky. Looking forward to chatting with everyone next week...
