Sandra said...

Wow! solstice,I love the fact that the sun is below in your work.

Penny Berens said...

I'm liking it. Are you capturing the moon? or rooted in the moon?

Marti said...

And the golden threads surround the moon,the tassels, guardians of the light that is coming from the Winter Solstice. And the celebration and tradition of story telling through cloth continues. A solstice blessing from Candlegrove: May your celebration of this season of holidays draw deep from the abundant joy, fierce hopes and enduring traditions of our ancestors."

i say there is a sun keeper in process.

nandas said...

what exactly is a sun keeper?

Debi From the Pacific Northwest said...

There seems to be more depth and a few shadows here and there. It may be a trick of the light though. I love the way you are protecting/nurturing your sun? moon?

;~) Debi

jude said...

a sun keep is just a sort of a story in my head. a way to remember and honor the sun.

The fabric for the sky is wonderful...perfect for the solstice sky in your cloth.

okay is it a sun or a moon? some comments refer to a moon and some a sun. Solstice usually refers to the distance of the sun from the equator, if I am correct. I love Jude's comment.

experience of making it in a post
but what i have loved is the
array of impressions. sun/moon
temple/tent/tree
this has made me very happy...

Can hardly wait for your writing. I know I tend to be black and white sometimes and it comes across harshly, sorry.Like I said on Jude's blog "art is subjective" so it can be a sun or a moon, what ever fits the owner's story, I just felt confused a little with the word "solstice". I'm not making any friends lately am I? Maybe I should hold off on commenting for awhile,

Marti said...

Helen, I am going to jump right in and say please continue to comment. We all have ways of seeing and feeling the art that is before us and it is all important. Solstice is Sun but when I looked at the orb that grace had placed in the bottom layer of her dark cloth, I saw the moon. Light comes from the sun, a warming light. Light comes from the moon, a cooling light- it's all illumination as are all of our comments.

Deb G said...

For Helen... I didn't have any problem with what/how you made your comment either, just so you know.

Grace, as always I love how your story builds and builds.
