Tiny Hooked Mother I

These hooked mother images are so much smaller than my hooked rugs. It becomes so intimate. I can cradle the whole image in my hand as I work. I am enjoying the change from six feet to just inches. They finish up so much more quickly. I wonder about size and the different statements that makes. With my rugs you need to step back but with these images they draw you close. Maybe that is what I am doing, trying to see my mother better, closer. Am I trying to understand where I came from?

i love the tiny hookings. I believe grieving is a process and that you are still going through that process in a very healthy productive way, through your art. it is beautiful.
