I have been quite the busy little bee the past few weeks. Lots and lots of paper has been folded, cut, and glued. The pictures above are a few examples of some of the creating that has taken place. The top image is a hanging bird in dress piece. The dress in this case is a birdcage and a lovely nest with eggs is being held within that cage. I haven't given this piece a title yet, but it will definitely be referencing the fact that recently I have been fighting off that mommy feeling, haha. I'm craving a little nestling to take care of and love. One day it will happen, but probably not anytime soon. And in that case, I will make more pieces to purge the feelings. That's what we artists do right, haha. The lower image is an image of a house covered with drawn and then cut origami peace cranes. Again, I haven't titled this work yet, but it is about the peaceful feeling one gets when they "land" in their home. I find my sense of home in people and the places they occupy. Throughout the past few years, my boyfriend/fiancee/and my now husband has been my home. My mother was the last to make me feel that sense of peaceful home and since her passing I have not felt that feeling of home until he took me into his shelter of love and safety. It is something that has been heavy on my mind lately and I wanted to express the feeling of our peaceful home.
These are just a couple more peeks of work that you will get to see in about month. Much much more to come! Let me know what you think!
