Begin It Now

Materials: inks, embroidery cottons, yarns, satin fabric

Technique: calligraphy, embroidery

Size: 23 x 31 x 4 cm 

Description: “BEGIN IT NOW” is an important reminder to encourage us to make the most of each situation. This message is reinforced in several ways. Goethe’s words “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it” are embroidered in variegated cottons on purple satin. This fabric has been lettered with a background repetition of the mantra “begin it now” and these same words are couched on top. Surely this will provide inspiration for me to stop procrastinating! 

Displayed in the ““Undercurrents” exhibition at Art Factory Gallery in 2011.
Purchased by a private collector in Brisbane.
