Artmarks 30 Day Summer Challenge 2017 - Day 24

Hello Everyone!

As we go into the final week of Rae Missigman's Artmarks Challenge, here is my page for today.

Day 24 - Remnants

When we were holidaying on The Orkneys earlier this year, we visited The Hoxa Tapestry Gallery on South Ronaldsay. Tapestry artist Leila Thomson incorporates poetry into her beautiful tapestries, and the quote on my page is from one of them, a stunning piece featuring a solitary person standing on a beach...


in this space we stand
our future an unknown and ever changing land
our past like a shadow across the sand
all you've been and all you've done
the children and all that they will become

Leila Thomson

You can visit the gallery website HERE, if you'd like to see Leila's beautiful tapestries.

Thanks for dropping by,
