Hot off the press … a new silk scarf debuting this week exclusively in the gift shop at Trinity Church in the City of Boston. The inspiration for the design is a stained glass window, The Sower and the Reaper, by Cottier & Co. of London, 1878, located in Trinity’s south transept.

I’ve seen the window for years now, photographing both the sower and the reaper, but recently it was the light shining through the wheat in the reaper’s arms that made me pause and in pausing I could see the parts that made up the beautiful whole.

And then I was able to play with those parts. A wonderful exercise producing other designs I hope to share in the near future. Meanwhile, I hope you have a chance to see the scarf for yourself in the shop, and you can learn more about the window on one of the excellent guided tours.

A delightful process of staring at an image and trying to imagine what could be and then … seeing what actually comes into being! This scarf, the second in series of limited edition silk scarves, is available exclusively at the Trinity Church gift shop in Copley Square.

Even though snow is forecast for the weekend, it is indeed spring in New England and that means my favorite flower shop is soon to reopen (yay). Various art shows including Somerville Open Studios (SOS) are building momentum.  More news about those exhibits in the near future. Meanwhile, I’m continuing to challenge myself with applications for my photography. And happily so!

These headbands are available in my new shop on the Art of Where website: https://artofwhere.com/artists/wordsandimagesbycynthia I’ve been pleased with the quality of the final product and look forward to adding new items with new images of branches especially as spring blooms appear.

The literal and figurative nature of branching has always played an important part in my creative life, whether writing, researching or walking the world with my camera.

During these rather chaotic times, it has been a pleasure to delve into new realms of creativity by … branching into cloth. 😉 We’ll see what the future holds. Meanwhile, please visit the shop and enjoy:  https://artofwhere.com/artists/wordsandimagesbycynthia

upon a white sheet of paper and for some reason the petals reminded me of a ball gown and so I tried to draw little legs and high heeled shoes. My nine-year old friend said the shoes looked a bit like rabbits but we agreed that was okay. 🙂
