This is my latest fibre art project, a little seahorse (in a 6″ circle) that is meant to hang on the wall. It’s created for someone very dear to me. I was thinking of the fragility of life and the meaning behind the words care and cherish.
A few lines from Bruce Cockburn’s song Little Seahorse from over 3 decades ago came floating back to me: Little seahorse swimming in a primal sea.
It’s interesting how creating with another in mind seems to really get my creativity sparked up, more so than when I’m working on a project with no endpoint in mind.
For 2013 I am also hoping to finish up and rework neglected pieces that need completion and resolving. This little seahorse is the first artwork created in that way.
