|I don't often feel I need to write a "statement" but this scene|
is very dear to me.
I've dreamed of doing a piece depicting it for a few years. Surface
Embroidery gives me the opportunity to express textures like on the
cream-colored gravel trail, all raked and ready for the season, The
bark of the trees, the old fence. The freshly mowed grass. Mowed by
someone that didn't really do it in neat rows. And the bushes...the bushes
that spread onto the ground and cover everything behind them. The
blossoms and blooms look almost fuzzy. The crocuses under the trees
were left unmowed and nothing can stop the dandylions from popping up
wherever they choose.
