Evocative moment... at first I thought, that cloth looks like a rusty piece of metal, then I realized it probably is. Beautiful.

And what you wrote about moments somewhere, yes, I had that realization a while back - a very "present" way of seeing/feeling/being with - life.

I love the face... hauntingly beautiful. I'm going to love watching this one grow.

valerianna...yes...it's a beloved
piece of copper
and it's funny...somehow i can
see things somehow more objectively if i put the pic here.
????
am interested in the combination
of the pencil on muslin/copper/
silk gauze.

debi...that face got used already
in the cloth of the last Spirit
Cloth workshop...this is a pic
of before. am wanting to look at
it to see what i think about doing
more drawings with cloth...am
wondering about just eyes..~?~

jude said...

the metal is quite liquid.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

jude...LIQUID...what a good word...
copper, for whatever reason so
beautiful to me and when it is
uh, what would be the word, ???
umm, spontaneously manipulated...
this was a piece that was run over
i think by heavy machinery..
liquid. hmmm. when i was looking
at it i was thinking it would
be interesting to see how it would
be as a segment of a cloth weaving.
i am getting some really interesting onion dye colors, i'm
not sure why they are less yellow
and quite a richer earth color.
Could be because of the skins being
from my own onions growing here
and something in the water. I don't know...but weaving varying
shades of that with the copper
piece in there somewhere...

I do think you should do more drawing on fabric, it would be a wonderful thing.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

deb...well, am experimenting and
thanks for encouraging that...if
i can find a way to really integrate it into the cloth work itself...so it's like a stain,
a loose part of a weave, an
organic mark...

jacky...it will need to be after
Beasts. will take a lot of quiet
gazing.

Jacky said...

I'm patient and I know it will be worth the wait.

I'm loving Beasts!
