What's in your water heater closet? Maybe you should check. You might find one of these.
"One of these" is defined as a work of art from long ago. I'm sure you have them stuffed somewhere. Don't you?
We recently had to replace our water heater which is housed in a little closet that opens from the master bathroom. There is room for the vacuum and all its attachments. But there is also room for one (or more) of these.
Imagine my surprise when I emptied the closet to discover that she matches this master bathroom color scheme and now hangs proudly in there.
I created this batik many many years ago. I would say at least 30+ years. Long enough that I cannot remember what my reference was but I would guess a picture in National Geographic.
I haven't any new art to share so I just thought she might interest you; as well as, remind you to go and see what is in your water heater closet.
PS: Thank you so much for your sweet, thoughtful and encouraging words after my last post.
I love using my hands to do anything. I get lost creating. Painting faces, collage, mixed media, and altered books are my passions.
Digging in the dirt feeds my soul. Flowers are one of God's greatest creations.
I'm shy although one might not know it. I have too many opinions and can't keep them to myself.
Every now and then, I just need to touch cloth. I use unwanted clothing, cast offs, remnants, unfinished works-in-progress, cloth napkins, table cloths, curtains, and my stash which is pretty extensive.
And then, I sit and stitch. And stitch. Because stitching calms and relaxes me. It quiets the chatter in my head and keeps me upright in the chair zone in the evenings. And that is The Cloth Side Of Me.
