A lovely multi-media image from Sheila reminding us that summer is a comin' in and to get your Beltane fires ready. She says:
I think of bonfires when I look at it. This seems to fit in with the 'bright fire' derivation of the common Celtic *belo-te(p)niâ. The colours are also very fire-like.
It is a piece of natural calico with painted Bondaweb© 'tree' trunks, there is also a bit of foiling in there, although it's not very clear on the photo. Small strips of green fabric give highlights to the trees and the button is a piece of driftwood that a friend's husband makes into these beautiful button creations. The melon seeds are coffee dyed - a result of my latest dying experiment.
I love this beautiful collaboration and mixing of media - definitely making me think of bonfires too, thanks!
Can't wait to see what other works are inspired by this festival "Fires of Bel/Beltane" on the cusp of seasons' change. Share through firstname.lastname@example.org
Joy, inspiration, love and light to you all
