“time plus little acts of love = a Good Life”
Made this Valentine this morning, with red silk, a sheer grey/black poly, and a handmade pink paper with sparkle-inclusions.
The paper must date back to pre-school volunteering – the glitter is a dead give away.
Ever since Jude posted something about the possibility of ‘sympathetic evolution’ – possibly by pairing old and recent work, I have been wondering what this might look like with my bag of tricks. A few weeks ago, I clicked some shots from an illustrated book of poems that I created in college – so we are talking mid-70’s. The one below inspired today’s card:
This is a collage using a dark-room created floral image.
A couple of weeks later, a chip of red fabric happened to find its way underneath that grey/black polyester that I am currently so in love with, and the resonance spoke for itself.
Today’s card is a reminder of the power of deadlines, the utility of saving a piece of paper for 14 years, and the value of re-visiting our earlier work.
While this little heart-felt card merely hints at what a more robust ‘sympathetic evolution’ might look like, it is a tasty hint, and I’ll take it as a signpost!
Practice note: it helped, some, to add black shadows to the white-stitched letters with a pigma pen.
hey I’m smiling, thankx
yeah! happy valentine’s day!
