i watch her traverse the circuit of guy-wires like an aerial acrobat, she moves gracefully from one radial line to the next a slender leg stretches out creating tension on the thread as her abdomen deftly tucks under lightly touching spinneret to web another sticky strand successfully attached and on she goes,
round and round each movement made with careful, rhythmic precision her morning work is almost done now she slows down making her way back to center weaving the final milky puffs of silk that come from her body into the tell-tale zig-zag of a garden spider
I am a contemplative artist, combining traditional mediums and digital technology to create unique images. I have two blogs: A Magic Mom and Her Mandalas, dedicated primarily to the art form of the mandala, and The Sacred Alter, which focuses on what I can only describe as "art birthed from the soul." I hope you will enjoy visiting both.
