Making Art for someone, is like being a surrogate mother...giving birth to something that isn't yours. Perhaps all of Art is this way.
I began this quilt with the intent of giving it away...and when it was done, I wanted to keep it around for awhile. Mostly I enjoy the process of starting from nothing and watching it develop, I enjoy the ride.
Some quilts, (my Story Line) have an immediate resonance with me...feel that they are part of the journal of my life. Others just are fun and delightful friends I played with for awhile and I am okay saying good-bye.
Well others are ladies I would like to hang around with...longer.
Which is the case with these two dancing on the shore. I loved their connection or energy and even their challenge to capture them on film.
It was as if the wind swirled and danced with them.
It is like something special that passes too quickly, or a moment you are unable to grasp.
"Ladybug's medicine includes carrying the golden strand that leads to the centre of the universe, past lives, spiritual enlightenment, death and rebirth, renewal, regeneration, fearlessness, protection, good luck, wishes being fulfilled, protection."
May this quilt inspire those who gaze upon it...and give them the ladybug medicine!
