after Easter

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen. ~Leonardo da Vinci

Its been a busy time with family and a 21st birthday celebration. I haven't picked up a paint brush for yonks but I have been doing a little stitching . Will be back to both soon. Both stitching and painting are poetry which stirs and soothes my hands, heart and mind all at the same time. Being busy makes me rest. Go figure!

bottle brushes

I remounted these two postcard sized embroideries - they now look more like botanical studies which is rather pleasing. The bottle brushes came about after experimenting with collages of cloth and images and are hand and machine embroidered.
