I have started to add some embroidery outline stitches around the mouth and sun.
Working on this is a reminder that I am creating a life of beauty, curiosity, and ritual.
Here is a view of all the pieces that I have made so far.
I plan to embellish with embroidery and beading.
I also plan to do the inside of the doors.
The doors here are the outside view.
I know in Japan they had roof that were especially designed to observe the moon and they wrote and read moon poetry. A beautiful ritual and practice. Since the moon is full every month or really 13 times a year, I thought that I should definitely participate in the Celebration.
I do have the Flower on the front of the door planted in a fabric that has a moon motif with the signs of the planet around it, in Celebrating the time honored tradition of planting by the moon.
Maybe there are many things that need to be planted in my heart and life.
Moon art is a wonderful way to remind me of these cycles.
I am continuing to do my Vagabonding (art study).
Today's entry is about how art is not about copying nature.
Art actually challenges nature because it is not made of the same elements.
Here is my drawing of the Symbol of St. Mark, from The Echiermach Gospels.
