The Water Lily Pond
Monet: Water-Lily Pond, c.1915–1926
This has always been one of my favorite paintings. I find the colors so soothing and restful. I have sorely needed that this past week. Yesterday, as I was picking the last of the odds and ends from the Great Cleanup and Organization, I caught sight of a skein of French silk thread that I have by Gloriana Threads . It is called Monet's Pond and it reminds me a great deal of this painting. I got out the floss and just set it on my desk to look at, very much like the knickknacks that I have decorating my desk. After more cleaning and putting away of things, I came across a design that I had purchased some time ago that I had put in the 'To Do' pile. I looked at the thread on my desk and knew it would be a perfect match. I found a pice of fabric in my stash that was the perfect size for this piece. It didn't even need to cut it to size! I haven't gotten too far into it, as I want to take my time with this piece. No frantically trying to beat an imagined deadline or to 'get it over with'. I need the slower pace to calm my soul after losing Ozzy. I suppose I will eventually return to Blessed Be, but not now.
Well, at any rate, here is the newest start:
