This is a piece of textile art that I just finished. It’s a sailboat! A long time ago, I made a sailboat painting that was very simple but I loved it. It has since been lost, what with all the moving. (I always wind up giving or tossing items that I completely regret later.) There’s something about sailboats that seems so carefree… and they make me think of warm weather. Can you tell I’m ready for spring? I have never actually been on a sailboat, as I grew up in places that were landlocked. After moving to Seattle, it was always so exotic to see the boats lined neatly in the harbor with the sun hitting the water and making everything sparkle. I’m dreaming of it right now.
