Last night I stitched some on the starfish cloth. I’ve had trouble getting back to it because it means this–that I must remove my blinders to the plight of our oceans–and it’s so much easier to leave them on–the blinders. But I can only turn away for brief periods–then face again. And now the cloth has me. Here, last night–
and when I picked up the cloth a few hours later, i realized it was missing the depth of expression it wanted. So this piece was added and it’s rich with symbols and information. The color isn’t right either–the starfish are more the color of the first photo–but that aside, is this sky too much?
Initially the cloth was suggesting a portal to be journeyed through. A portal–safe haven. I think that’s being lost now. It’s all gotten so complicated. Maybe I’ll split the cloth.
