I have a handful of these limited edition tapestries left (I sewed 20 total but a few have already been claimed), they feature an original illustration I did of Sandhill cranes, wild thistles, and chrysanthemums. Hand drawn, then screen printed on canvas, heat set and sewn by yours truly. I’m going to be working towards doing more pieces like this in the future, hopefully even more detailed/refined. If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself, they are 40 plus shipping (a reduced price because this is something of a sample sale). Shoot me a message if you’re interested. The design itself is 17” by 30”.
I need to start off by saying: I hate the ideology behind road trips that bring your closer to your “spirituality”. It’s really western to exploit other culture for your own benefit. I know I come from privilege and was grateful for the opportunity I had to travel cross country.
The trip made realize how beautiful the physical features are in America. I have never been out west before. California never really appealed to me before until I actually saw it in person. I felt content. A feeling that felt so natural. The idea of content was very transparent to me. I was happy. I never felt more alive in my entire life.
I realize that I really should finish school. It made me realize that a dream is difficult to work for, especially since the cost of living out there is far beyond my reach.
Overall, I guess it made me revaluate my current position in life as a young adult. I love myself and the trip made me love myself even more. I feel more in touch with myself personally and I want to push this idea of home and identity outward.
I hope that made sense. I am drunk.
This is sweet and I appreciate it! But it puts me on a pedestal. I’m just a girl trying to get by who puts herself out there.
