Torn Dragonfly wing with iolite
There is an epic shift in my head involving my work...a leap is imminent.
I cannot sleep
I forget to eat
the only priorities are care of my family
and interpreting these God whispers
This delicate cycle I was most interested in the tattered and torn: the shape of the dragonfly wing is exactly how it was offered to me. The rips and jaggedness speak of life and ultimately death.
I wonder how long the tiny beastie lived with these little badges of honor, these marks of survival.
They remind me of the pocked ears of neighborhood tomcats I love.
It seems the perfect season to add a tiny watercolor dot of gemstone pigment to the work...days grow ever shorter and more dim here. I hang on to the last light of day like a kite.
I am taking reserves for these pieces
What does not get scooped lovingly into pretty palms will be available
this weekend when there's a second to list.
I hope you have a wonderful day filled with abundance and shearling warmth.
