it is the smallness of the figure, or the sense of scale that i love the most.

Hmmm...I think I carried this in my mind (or maybe my heart) because I just stitched a moon with a bit of gauze over the top of it. :)

Velma said...

kaite said...

Hi Grace ~ recently a friend loaned me a back issue of 'selvedge' magazine to peruse...it has a very graphic (and for me, thought provoking) cover. When I popped in over here and viewed your new piece, well, it occurred to me you might enjoy seeing it. Found their website page...the image is tiny but is so graphic I think you'll be able to see it ok: http://www.selvedge.org/pages/backissues.aspx

Much communication (heard & unheard) happens between humans & birds, I think...

Christi...thank you for the link
to Selvedge...it is a beautiful
image. this place being desert
with such vastness all around
lends itself to things being
experienced in an singular way.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Jude, yes...that is how it feels
here. the immensity of sky, the
circular horizon, clearly visible
no matter where i look..
when "the world" is too much with
me, all i need to do is look up
and be comforted.

Deb g ...moon and gauze, there
is great affinity

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

velma, small conserves strength in
desert places

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

kaite...i see what you mean but
it depends on the light. it's
not really there.

hello, raven ~ when i came to
this acre of land, there was not
even one rock...large stone. there
was nothing but sand and in that
month of August, 3 kinds of weeds.
none even a foot tall. slow but
sure, like creating a story cloth,
i added and added. there are many
circles of stone/rock now around
the various tree wells, garden
beds, marking places where a single
native grass has taken root.
sometimes i have moved them and
placed them in other patterns when
i needed help, needed direction,
needed to quiet myself inside the
world around and all its doings.
