This year because we were not at home, March 3, I did not put these dolls out until this past week. Last year I did try an exhibit of ONLY landscapes which I felt was visually boring. I enjoy letting the Ningyo have their moment away from the tissue coverd boxes they reside in, when not on display.
Besides I can only think that Spring must be round the corner, (even if the snow is flying here in Denver), when I see this lady and silk screen print done by my friend Eugenie Torgerson.
I remember the Springs of Okinawa when I get this dancing lady out.
Or set this lady dancing on the bingata (ikat dyed fabric from Okinawa) of a Noren (curtain).
These objects allow me to remember and to
look at the new visual liveliness they will bring to my life before I tuck them away for another time when Spring needs heralding.
