This work is created using applique and surface stitchery and framed in a Tasmanian Oak box frame by Fogelbergs Conservation Framers. I was inspired to zoom into the landscape and play with the ideas of the circle in the square. Carl Jung believed that the circle in the square represented transformation and enlightenment. This particular work was created in the studio prior to Xmas when I felt moved to draw upon some motivational cards that I like to explore at times of transition. The first one I pulled out of the pack said "Spread your Wings! Do not hold back right now. The timing is perfect and you are ready to soar!" I feel like this time of my life and my art practice have built a type of momentum and I am flying along with the energy of it all!

Due to the deep box framing of this work, it looks great either on a wall or sitting on a table.
