All Mine

I've admired B.C. textile artist Gloria Daly for some years now.   In particular, I've been captivated by her series Blanket Statement: No Shame in Patches -- and at last I own a small sampling:


Yes...I've managed to make a successful bid for this piece, Red Brick, and soon it will find a home in my home.  I actually got to see this piece when it was part of the SAQA Western Canada touring exhibit, "Meet the Best of the West" a couple of years ago...so I've witnessed its colour, its texture, its homage to recycling and hand-stitch.

Thank you, Gloria, for your thoughtful, quiet work that says so much about that which is true, right and lovely in the world.
