pause (sort of)

The Quixotic Giving Project is ongoing and also experiencing a tremendous pause. A pause in shipping, that is.

I am making new work!

Once 150 pieces went out the door, I needed to double down and make more art. That is what is on the studio table now.

My absolute favorite paint brush. It gobbles and shares water like no other brush in my collection.

A syringe for water and a few new colors from Beam Paints (that I bought for my Birthday for myself).

This next step is planning layout ideas. This part is collage of dots before anything becomes one.

After planning layouts I will begin to sew paper to paper—no glue will be used. I stitch with either embroidery floss or my Bernette sewing machine. In some cases both methods of stitch making will be used.

I'd like you to understand, what I have shared here is not a step-by-step recipe for making hundreds of pieces of art. In fact, as I take my pause in sending the art out into the world and instead share the making process, there are s many steps I have not shown here. But isn't that part of the intrigue?

I do this work from and for the energy it creates.

I share my work for similar reasons—the push and pull of connection is energetic between viewer and maker. Energy flows: from and for one another.

Until next week, Namasté (may our energies honor one another)
