Whatever is happening is the path to enlightenment. —Pema Chödrön
More feathers, because it’s what I happen to be doing at the moment. A path lined with feathers is not a bad path to be on!
Getting a bit bolder with the color combinations…orange thread over yellow green paint, complementaries, that sort of thing.
May have over done it with the red-violet feather on emerald green…that one looks a bit muddy. Too many different kinds of thread. Too many colors.
When the work starts to get slick, polished, ornate, precise, or needlessly intricate, it’s time to step back and empty the mind of what it knows, again: time to dig up the real feather that started all this, and really look at it.
Starting from zero, studying the feather as if for the first time, and proceeding with attention and praise for it as an individual and miraculous thing. Which, of course, it is.
