WE.
MASS-BLOSSOM.

The photo is from September 2019, the Autumn I was met with an army of super-resilient Red Spider Lilies.
Taught me how to woman-up, yes they did.

This year, for the first time I bound my daily planner, crafted it in just the way I wanted.
With uneven edges and unfinished stitches, even let the stamped numbers dance, too!
All for the purpose of gifting myself daily, with a reminder that in Creativity there is, inherent, inviolable freedom.

The journal is photographed with dried spider lily blossoms from 2 autumns ago, with overlaid images of the ocean photographed during the first few days of this year.

Creative Process, September 2018.

The project: Spider Lily Red.
In progress is the second of the two piece series called “Flare”.
Images are from this past September, captured moments during the precious three weeks I get to spend every autumn with my favorite lilies, my muse, taking in as much, their familier red to last me for a year.
The photos are in sleepy smoky monochrome, because I am saving up the stored red so as to pour it all into the second piece I will be painting in the coming months.

Thank you for your visit, and Happy Holidays!!

Red to believe.

Spider lily red. Not of the castle, nor of the village.

力を振りかざすのでもなく、それにひれ伏すのでもない赤。おかえりなさい。
