Time Out

by Karen

When I was a kid, we had a rocking chair in the living room, and whenever I was hurt, physically or emotionally, my mom would hold me and rock me until I was all better. I own this rocking chair now and it still evokes strong memories for me when I look at it. The finish is wearing off, but I'm not going to change anything. I wanted to give you a feeling of movement with the chair and I accomplished this by printing the image on organza and overlapping it 3 times. I was really stuck at this point, as I didn't want to take the focus away from the chair, but I didn't want to just frame it in. I remembered a "weaving" class I took from my friend Ellenina Gaston several years ago, and thought about weaving in the memories I had from my childhood.
