|Knitted and waiting.|
|Lyn Belisle's lovely clay faces and feathers collected.|
So during my lazy prime time TV viewing, this knitted piece was started and finished. She is now stitched on to a drift wood stick and we're trying on faces. One masculine, the other feminine to represent Perkunas and Zemyna respectively. See, in this vision, I caught the tail of an idea how Earth needed (and still needs) electricity, the Zap from the Heavens, in order to create. I remember hearing of some creation story, set in a laboratory, of scientific-minded folk playing with some primordial ooze and a little electricity creating life forms. It's a creation story from my mother. (Some get The Garden of Eden, I got The Lab. It worked for my practical, heretical mind at the time.) Though I don't know how accurate the Creation Story is, it's as good as any given in any other culture at any other time. It is the inspiration for this piece and so I choose carefully. Sometimes, elements will sit for awhile, let them germinate, get to know each other, before continuing. It's where we're at right now. Which means I have time to paint!
