Work in progress
I am currently working on a wall hanging. I am working freeform crochet onto a framework of withies and with a hessian backdrop. I will be posting more details as it progresses.
Wherever I go I am intrigued by patterns and textures. Last Autumn I took a leisurely walk with a friend round Cauldshiels Loch near Galashiels. It was a dreich grey day. Wet and still. Yet the cool quiet atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing and refreshing. Colours everywhere sang and shone in the wet.
Afterwards I returned to this wonderful atmospheric feeling and worked on capturing some of that vibrant,stripped-away stillness on canvas. Here is one of them in various stages of its emergence.
