Paris Accord: Golden Opportunity

June 27, 2017

I began work on my Possibility Challenge almost immediately after it was posed

 

 

.  I was pumped.  I was going to focus on the environment and the importance of our stewardship. Like Lin Hsin-Chen I was focusing on trees.  I had a treasured piece of hand-dyed cotton, created by my buddy Carol Eaton, as a starting point.  I had free-motion quilted all sorts of trees:  oak, maple, palm (even though it's really a grass), sequoia, willow and a small fruit tree.

 

Then....just as I was contemplating adding color and symbols of growth, the President of the United States curiously withdrew from the Paris Accord.  I was flummoxed, angry and bewildered.  That's when this piece took a turn to the dark-side.

 

My trees were white-washed whilst I cursed, then driven over by my Honda, then stomped on by my husband, then slashed and, finally, adorned with rusted bits found on my morning walks.  It's a mess.
