It Is Complete!

Very pleased to report that Linda Friedman, an artist from Vista CA, has finished her beautiful flag for the Bhavana Project's Peace set.  That completes this set, Readers!

Linda drew inspiration for the flag from a friend's photo of a public sculpture.  Linda reinterpreted the image  to cloth with paint, adding stitching and beading.  Linda mentions, "Because a couple of the beaded stars and the arms of the figures reach beyond the beaded frame, it seems to me as if a movement toward peace reached beyond boundaries of time and space."

The wording on the flag reads: Peace is within. Soar to the Stars.

Thank you very much for your contribution, Linda!  Your creativity has added a wonderful final touch to this series of flags.

The flags are heading to northern California for an exhibit later this year.  Stay tuned for details.

Sunday's flag workshop at Buster's Baskets was a fun afternoon of creative play.  First let me thank Tina Millman, proprietor of Buster's, for welcoming us and hosting this event.  Thank you to all the ladies who brought their energy and intention to the workshop.  I was happy to guide the explorations.






After loosening up with some creative exercises, it was on to flags...All were receptive and open, diving right into bringing their ideas to cloth.

Creative juices flowed using paint, glue, fabric, crayons, pencils, embellishments, and more.
