An #artnoveau outtake from photographing a different project - I love Mucha and so this silhouetted profile shot caught my eye and I played around with it a bit. 🌙🌿☀
The #freeform #crochet #floral headpiece is a long strand of curlicue vines and flowers with personal significance for me - when I was traveling across the country in my car for months, I brought just enough craft supplies to fit in a tiny vintage hard shelled luggage case. It was all scrap yarn balls, and I crocheted this piece flower by flower across the country as we drove. When I got back home, I completed the vines and attached the flowers as I thought about the farms, communities, and national parks where they, and I, had been. It's not a long strand, but it's story spans thousands of miles across the American landscape. It was a difficult time for me - I won't pretend it wasn't - but it made me stronger. It helped me grow.
