In Dreams

I'm thinking of calling this series In Dreams -- the collages, quilted, are ethereal, like dreamscapes, images morphing into one another.  This is the second piece.  I've got several more in process now, or at least printed on fabric and waiting their turn for completion.

Where did the last week go?!  I can't remember the last time it was a week between posts for me.  Probably it's better to not say anything if I don't have something to say!  I'm still here, though, plugging away...more like trudging away, taking care of various life organization errands with spurts of artmaking thrown in here and there.  I'd planned to quilt all day today on my Fiberactions transformation piece, then things got in the way.  I did add beads to the first two dreamscapes this morning, as well as print more digital images on fabric for the series.  That's something!

I've been reading Await Your Reply by Dan Chaon the last few days, and really enjoying it.  In these days when I've been reinventing myself yet again, this novel has been a coincidental treat.

I love this one! It more solid than "ethereal" to me, somehow. I think it's the shapes, and the colors, that make it seem like it has so much "earth" to it.

I also think that this quilted piece is very grounded and solid and very strong. Your inner life must be reflected in it, if this is what dreams mean to you.

I also stole your Phases of the Moon. Thanks very much!

You just keep plugging and it's all good! I envy your focus.

'In Dreams' is a great title for this series. I would love to fall into a dream of those colours..like falling into the stars or flying/floating, breaking up and coming back together again. Great Stuff!

You certainly achieve plenty although you don't seem to think you do. Even when you are doing other things creativity is still swirling around down deep.

Looking forward to seeing more of this series.

I just love the pieces in this series. The texture, colours and shapes. An inspiration to print off your digital collages directly to the fabric, they work so well.
