Aileen Taylor’s dream of a pennant
with layers of stitch, vintage cloth and braids
and dreams
hanging with the gathering
we have been friends since 1970
I won’t cut up A’s beautiful dream but did add the rainbow thread ribbon for hanging
Magic Days!

    As the top of the image appeared on my screen a thought flashed: Elizabethan stumpwork? Looking further just cemented the idea in my mind … happily. What a textural and color-full wonder/wander …

    Oh the thick, rich deepness of it all!

    that peace kitty has the rich baroque quality of folk art. I was surprised to see how BIG it is.

      (((Dee))) Aileen explores the subconscious as a mid career painter using cloth and thread as her palette often on a very big scale. I just added her note to this post to clarify, she rang in December nervous about her offering saying ‘it is what it is’, I love it!

    Aileen’s pennant is so original, so intoxicating, so rounded in its imagery, in its use of color, thread; a rococo offering of such an important symbol for Peace is always the way if we are to turn the dream of a world where love is the answer into reality.

    Ha ! of course NOT cut it up …. It’s such a true dream
    (magical mixed up : like my dreams always are !)

    Wow, this is a really original design, both straightforward (the peace sign) and complicated (everything else). Its circular shape makes it different right off the bat, and its witty kitties leaven the abstraction of the textured embroidery. No cutting necessary!

    MC – That is one out there symbol for peace. B
