Hi Grace - I see the grasses - the color looks perfect. They look very nice. I like the way you drape fabric for wind - it expresses wind so well. I also like the way it is sneaking out from inside of the circle. Wonderful.

It is very evocative of works past - very grace-full.

Hi,
This is lovely ... and I can see the grasses! The whole piece is soft and has warmth but also so much depth.
Really nice!

wowww beautiful. every thing seems to be a part of the next thing. all growing and flowing from and into each other.

i haven't read all the posts leading up to this one, so i haven't learned it's story yet. but it reminds me of the the earthy work from the 70's. i miss that.

and i need to get caught up :)

So good to see the lizard in the 'enlarged' format. Skilfully done!

Coming home, Welcome home, Home. Wind blows gently lifting the feather grasses for I shall think of the grass here as your sweet feather grass. The woman is serene, the lizard by her side, Home.

jude said...

will you stitch the wind down?

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

jude..probably not. because it
will always be here. but it is
my mission to learn all the ways
Wind can be in cloth. weaving
it in, stitching it in,
threadweaving it in, whatever
that is, as i was typing brain
said "threadweaving"?
but a committment to Wind.
