Wonderful weekend

This has been a sunny weekend with warmth and clarity of light so I’ve worked outside on another leaf.  I’ve also been applying successive coats of paint to more small canvases which will bear the “leaves”.

The colour is Dulux Green Spinach which seems appropriate for a frame that will carry a "leaf".

Why am I making more leaves?  Well…MELD ( http://meldarts.wordpress.com) is at the stage where we are reviewing our work for the exhibition and thinking about how best to present it in the available space at the Showcase Gallery.  This has resulted in my thinking that in the space reserved for my original five “leaves” I could present nine in three rows of three very well.

Since every one is different and created from scratch (or from loop!) there is a great satisfaction for me in designing with my stitch vocabulary and my yarns.  It’s like serving  several quite different meals from the same buffet!

Here’s (some of) the buffet:

Some of the yarns that, like carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and water, form the structure of a leaf.
