a nice sunny day

I made this for Dot I wanted so bad to put sticks on this!!! but I had to improvise so I made felt leavs and used twine to give it a stick feal, so it could make it way into Australia :)

I have a altered book that I need to work on and get out tomorrow and I ran out of one of my favorite things so with a little help from my friends, and a wonderful 78 I took advantage of the sun and coffee dyed some muslin.

I get to a point where I get so full of creativity that I can not get it out of my head and make it turn to something more... I am at that point right now ~

Art as Flirtation and Surrender

In your light I learn how to love.

In your beauty, how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest,

where no one sees you,

but sometimes I do,

and that sight becomes this art.

Am very excited that you have made this for me. It looks so beautful. Cannot wait to see it up close my creative friend!

Love the photo of the muslin drying in the son (and your doggies checking it out).

Thanks for sharing the Rumi poem. It is just beautiful.
