Freeing the Spirit

I finally managed to get a new collage done!
It's been New Windows week at chez Fran and boy did those guys leave a mess behind. But I now have much more light and windows I can open properly!
Anyway, this piece was inspired by the notion in some cultures that any painting or weaving should have a line or thread which runs from top to bottom and off the edge, thus preventing the artist's creativity being trapped in their work.
You can see it for sale here


  1. Ahh, I remember reading about this when I did some Navajo weaving. This is totally beautiful and I love it. I am enjoying seeing your watercolours as well.

    Great work as always, Fran!
