More photos from Sapphire: first, Noel & Parker at one of the largest rocks. Then, Parker and I have a rest...after which, Parker and Erika play king/queen of the rock! Last, Professor and Mac in the cabin.
Tapestry diary of the year 2016 is underway. I'm doing individual days as bands, squares or rectangles of separate colors. Months are going to be represented as larger images. Here's January in progress.
...(I) have come to the conculsion that tapestry can indeed be an art form in its own right with its own specific mode of expression if the craft of weaving is allowed to influence the art of tapestry. In order to be meaningful, tapestry must find its own identity. It must not be a woven painting, but rather a composition that could only have been woven, not painted.
