I have completed the last tapestry in this cycle of Bee thought. All of this new work is going off to Patina Gallery in Santa Fe next week for my show there, opening October 7.
This piece, “Being Here”, just flew off the loom, as opposed to the earlier piece on the same warp, now named “Beatrice” (after Dante’s muse), who worried me to death all summer (so much for the power of a Muse!). I felt that a cloud of energy, diffusing upward, was a good and fitting point to rest this inner search. It feels good and peaceful and there is more than a promise of joy to come.
