Pocket of Hope
I made this prayer flag inspired by Vivika DeNegre's Prayer Flag Project for a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer this week.Little slips of paper with handwritten prayers will be slipped into the pocket and the flag will be hung outside to that the wind will carry my intentions to all.  

While making the flag I found myself sending her wishes of healing and health and the process proved to be therapeutic for me as it provided a time for reflection and quiet peace. 

Wishes of peace and health to all....

I've lived in many homes throughout the years and in each one I learned great life lessons. Although I have one or two favorites, they each have heartache and more importantly, happiness imprinted within. After all, home is where the heart is and it's love that makes the world go round.

This piece, titled Home is part of the Fiber Journeys exhibit being held at the Willoughby Wallace Memorial Library in Stony Creek, Connecticut from March 27th - April 29th.

The Sentinelle Project will be part of the Sisters in Cloth - Shoreline Art Quilters exhibit this spring at The Willoughy Wallace Memorial Library gallery in Stony Creek, Connecticut. The exhibit runs from March 27th - April 29, 2015. All are invited to an opening reception on Sunday, April 12th from 4-6PM.

The sentinels are linocuts created by Australian artist, Dijanne Cevaal, have been used as inspiration by the group’s members to create an impressive grouping. All are different and each artist’s personality is evident. Some of these pieces travelled to Europe and Australia, as it has been Dijanne’s vision to have the sentinelles keep watch the world over.

This sentinelle is my Ode to Lucille, a woman who has been a part of my life since I was born and will forever be dear to my heart. Lucille is The Goddess of Forgiveness as it was the act of forgiveness that she tirelessly tried to instill in my soul. Although she has been gone for many years, I can clearly hear her words as I strive to make her proud.

There have been lots of artist postings on Facebook lately and I am honored to have been picked to be part of the Art Challenge where each artist posts photos of his/her work, gives mention to the nominating artist and in turn nominates another artist each day.

Given the freezing temperatures and snow covered grounds, these two pieces remind me that spring will indeed come!
