Hello Polar Bear! I am working on a top secret project and immersing myself in the Arctic, really a boundless source of inspiration. I have been studying A Naturalist’s Guide to the Arctic written by the ecologist, E.C. Pielou, so that my fanciful imaginings and magical projections about the polar region are tempered with a dash of natural history. I have a head full of patterned ground, tundra polygons and ponds, not to mention the plants, birds, mammals, fish and insects.
Can it really be a year since I stitched my first Polar Fish Boy? I wonder where my armchair expedition will take me this time!
I like the collage above by Lizzy Janssen too, it is named Land of Shine.
Of course I couldn’t get away without including some work by Diane of Hibou Caillou Chou! Diane’s work is influenced by Inuit culture and the Great North, poetic lines indeed.
The Polar Bear Plate by One Blackbird caught my imagination as well.
Happy New Year everyone!
