In Which to Dance the Can-Can

Detail: Cotton Petticoat, 2014
Beneath an ankle length scarlet red wool skirt, a petticoat with a pleated band stitched around the hem in a wave of crests and troughs. Paired together, the light wool gauze drapes over the ruffled petticoat which lends fullness to the skirt's silhouette and adds a layer of warmth.

The prolonged winter is ebbing away now, slowly. Tree branches have begun to bud. Spring will be sublime, bursting with color. In the morning birds chirp vigorously as though anticipating a fireworks-like display of radiant blossoms and greenery.
