One of the great pleasures for me in living in the Greater Boston area is ease of access to nature. And by “ease of access” that can mean taking two trains, a bus and then walking half a mile or so, but still, I know that I am lucky to be where I am and that on any given day I can make my way to at least two major rivers, the Charles, and in the case of this image applied to a pouch and on stationery, the Mystic River. You can learn more about the Mystic River watershed here and peruse other items with this image here.

Painter and stained glass designer John LaFarge (1835 – 1910) talked about construction by color in one of his lectures to architecture students. The phrase resonated with me I guess in part because when I am staring at a stained glass window or other architectural feature I am drawn to the colors and see them as building blocks. Now, not everything should be deconstructed and reconstructed, but it has been great fun and an honor to play with the sunlit glass and bold interior paintings at Trinity Church to produce these items that are now available in the church gift shop.

Shop hours are traditionally Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am – 4:30 pm, and Sunday 1:00 – 4:30 pm. http://trinitychurchboston.org/visit/tours

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
