My folk-art imagery reflects my multi-cultural background and my fascination with folkart from around the world. Inspiration comes from memories collected during my African childhood with its animals and grasslands, a sojourn in the green South of England and time spent in Connecticut, Tennessee, Utah and Ohio.
It was time to take a break from all the digging and take a few moments to enjoy the glimpses of life buried beneath the snow. Soft puffballs sitting atop the rose-hips and clinging to the crabapples.
Beautiful reds and browns inspired me to get in the dye room and do a little spontaneous dyeing. A nice worsted weight superwash merino. Soon to be a hat. It will be needed, there is a rumor there is more snow in the forecast.
Of course I could not do just one skein. More to follow later.
