Maybe it’s just me, but I see shibori possibilities in so many things. I enjoyed a week away from everything surrounded by nature, beauty, and quiet. I had some books, some paper,paints,& pencils, and my camera and the time to spend with them without interruption.
Some of the things I saw-
beautiful red dots on scaley, shimmering brown trout
base dyed red, clamped, discharged,clamped/resisted some more, overdyed in grey browns….
-hundreds of dragonflies in reds, blues and greens..
In North American Indian lore, the dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, representing the messages of wisdom and enlightenment; and communication from the elemental world. The dragonfly possesses the ability to see through illusion. They bring prosperity and harmony. The dragonfly totem teaches skillful action while maintaining a free and joyful sense of being.
The dragonfly in samurai lore is said to represent unwavering loyalty by its tireless flying.
back and ready to work…
