Take a Breather (2023)





The brief breathing space in the year is the late spring/early summer the short lived time in the year when everything is good. Mental health is as good as it gets. I feel in control of things not overwhelmed and not yet dreading what come next. This is ‘Take a Breather’. It is sunshine and daisies butterflies and dragonflies clear dawn light colour and sparkles. Cut silk cocoons are used to make the flowers. The soft sunshine is yellow wool with white silk mawata layers felt circles degummed cocoons and spun mulberry silk rays. Cut lace and sari cuttings form the details of the insects and flowers. https://ushmasargeantart.com/mental-health-through-the-year/
