My newest piece

Okay, here is a shot of my newest piece fresh from the loom. I'm not sure what the title is yet, but it might be "Contemplative Garden." I'm working on a set of pieces more or less linked to garden ideas--but not the sort of garden where you grow tomatos. The sort of garden that is all overgrown and mysterious where you might find your greatest love, the most beautiful flower, time to watch a bird in a birdbath hidden behind a tree, or time to walk a labryinth.

I've also realized something critical this week--that I have to get a new digital camera if I have any intention of photographing my work well. My friend Julie came over to photograph me for some projects of her own and caught this piece coming off the loom. Holy cow if her photos weren't a million times better than mine. Okay, I know that a lot of that could be user error, but I have been running a camera most of my life and think with better equipment I could get some pretty good shots of my work--at least good enough until I get into the Smithsonian.

I've realized some other critical things lately, but those are going to have to wait for a later post.
