Taking Back July (Work in Process)

July has not been a favored month for me for many years now. Sad memories along with the heat make it hard to enjoy being outside. Even though my garden is ripening rapidly in July, it has often felt like a parched month for me, within and without. I started this piece at the beginning of July. It started with a question about my mood and morphed into Taking Back July…starting with going to my first fireworks show in many years over Waneka Lake.  I’ve been really enjoying July since I started this piece.  Even the weather at the beginning of July felt unusually cool and refreshing with a lot of rain. I’m not sure where it is leading me.  (See finished beadwork here)
