Open Window

My newest piece in the doors and windows series:

Open Window

now on display at Art on Boston gallery
24" x 18"

This piece came together very quickly, in one sewing session - although I had a bunch of the greens and yellows already stripped and sewn.

As I was working on this, I was looking at it from another direction (rotated clockwise) - but it felt better with the light coming downward.

Then we went to France and I took all these photos of sunlight shining through arched doorways, onto steps - and they looked a lot like this piece! deja vu?

This is the 1st century Roman arena in Arles
- still used for bullfights and other events - although they stopped the gladiator contests and throwing Christians to the wild beasts a while back.

So I am expecting to make a few more doors and windows with roman arches and stairs with light flowing down -
