Black and White Series: Pulling The Empty Carriage (2005)

Something is wrong with Blogger. I can't preview my posts before publishing them. Oh well.

In the dream that inspired this image, I was a "stable girl" walking through the night next to a pair of horses and a pair of small white dogs who were pulling a large empty carriage. It was a huge responsibility, but I accepted it willingly. I felt deep love for the animals in my care. I don't know where we were coming from or where we were going, just that it was a full moon night, and that the animals depended on me to take care of them. I could feel in my bones that I had finally been given right livelihood.

After this image are 15 more images that I completed in 2006. Since March 8, 2007, I have completed 24 new images along with 10 inkle belts. As of today, I am seriously considering taking a time out from blogging for an indefinite period of time after I show the images through 2006 and complete my 40-year retrospective. I am grateful that my energy for painting and weaving has returned.

Take a look at this and this.

I have been enjoying your 40 year retrospective, am. You make me wish I could paint. I'm looking forward to seeing what your new work looks like. I certainly understand wanting to take time away from blogging. I've done it myself over the past 2 1/2 years.
