I love mailing my art to
it takes months for it to come back to me
and when it does..
it is like greeting an old friend..
|Mixed media detail on paper, Caterina Giglio|
I just sent in my summer submission
think fabric quilts, tiny flowers and collage on fabric
warm and cheery...
harder to do when the weather is chill..
even here in the sunshine state...
|Stitching up the Sky, 6 x 6 on 9 x 12 watercolor paper|
there is something so satisfying about ripping up old papers...
and giving them a home...
|Are the Stars Out Tonight? Caterina Giglio, Mixed media on paper 6 x 6|
taking something mundane
and meant for a trash heap
and creating a piece of art with with it...
|Ruffled Edges, Caterina Giglio, 6 x 6 on 9 x 12 watercolor paper|
it elevates it and all the different pieces of paper
sing together in completely new song...
|Detail of Ruffled Edges, Caterina Giglio|
inside the layers are songs and poems and stories
of friendship and love
of loss and longing...
betrayal and darkness...
|Solstice Stars, Caterina Giglio|
but above all there is
|December 2014 issue of Sew Somerset|
and one only
to see to find it...
I am going to keep the cover piece and have it framed,
but the other three pieces will be headed for my online shop,
which will be going through some big changes this year..
so stay tuned...
