By the Light of the Moon
A walk through the garden at midnight, the deep velvety blue of the sky contrasting with the ghostly glow of the moon. It's light falls on dried seed heads turning them into antique lace. Just like nighttime, this is a quiet piece that will draw you in slowly and calm your senses.
Pen and ink and watercolours on tea bag paper. White french knots - seeds glowing in the moonlight - an exquisite piece of antique lace their metaphor. Scraps of intense blue velvet fabric against white wax paper reflect the moonlit sky. Delicate embroidered slow stitching remind us to stop for a minute and take a closer look. A sliver of dried chumbo skeleton a symbol of time passing.
