HOPE STONE: Solitude by Donna Stockdale

18" x 42"   © 2022   

HOPE STONE: Solitude Detail

Solitude was made in response to Joanna Lilley‘s poem, Hope Stone. I was thinking about the searching we do while grieving, making meaning out of loss, feeling despair and loneliness alternating with the hope that a changing perspective can bring. Experiencing the solitude in nature can help one‘s spirit mend.

Techniques: Wool fibre, wet-felted with needle-felted detail. Quilted Backing: cotton muslin with hand-dyed botanical leaf prints, polyester batting.
