The Fibre Arts Take Two  "Making Connections" course with Cas Holmes is coming to an end now and I have submitted my entry for the end of course virtual exhibition.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Yesterday I went to see an exhibition of Cas' work on the redundant lightship, LV21, now moored at Gravesend.

Despite using similar techniques her work is very different to mine.  Her long hanging pieces are mich lighter (weight) almost gauzy despite being designed to be viewed from both sides, and her use of colour is much more limited.

Thank you for the nice comments. 

The brief was a 3:1 landscape format to reflect the places around us during lockdown.  For me the daily one hour exercise walk took me past a lovely flowering cherry tree, into the lane and past an old corrugated barn with so much vegetation growing over it that it looks like it has an earth roof, then scrubby, twiggy hedges, open fields and onto the marshes proper with reeds and rushes. Charles Dickens quote from Great Expectations seemed appropriate because that was based on Cooling marshes just a few miles away and all part of the North Kent Marshes.

That is gorgeous, I keep wanting to combine art and textiles but can never bring it together right, you obviously have a talent there

As it neared the top of the grade, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could,  I thought I could."

Love that @BrendaP !! So very Cas in spirit if not imitation. You have taken the essence of what she does and made it your own.  :loveit:

I really like it.  :loveit:
Great combination of textiles put together and it has a gentle timelessness feel to it.
I hope you make more of these pieces as you have a real talent for it.  :perfect10:
