“Diving Deep into the Stream of Love and Connection" (27”W x 32.5”T x 1”D) was created after having spent an amazing weekend with a boyfriend out in CA. The connection between us at the time had the sense of two beings, in perfect union, diving into a beautiful stream. Freefalling into an experience was a new sensation for me at the time and the rush of that feeling still makes me smile. While he and I don’t correspond much anymore, I do thank him for the memories.
I used parallel iridescent ribbons to symbolize the two of us diving from puffy lace clouds in the upper right. A lush landscape was created out of silk maidenhead fern leaves and dyed shell leaves. Olive colored cat eyes and Miracle beads give a shine to the foliage. Moiré lace in the water gives a shimmer to the stream, much like the interior of an abalone shell. There are places on the banks of the stream where one could rest after having been for a delightful swim. I do love the landscapes I create!
