January--Beginnings

A new year begins...
the opened door releases
the unknown's magic.






I tried to capture a sense of magic in the piece. The magic of all the possibilities inherent in the future. The piece is fused applique collage and beaded. Machine quilted iwth mettalic thread.

Hey Betsy
It is fabulous. I think you caught the magic and the simpleness of the haiku too.

I love your dragonflies, Betsy! Their colors and flight pattern truly do make them look magical.
