On Tuesday, by Barbara Wyckoff of Miller Place and asked readers what they thought of it in a series we call, First Impressions.
The following is what readers had to say:
said, "I love the colors. And to me it makes me feel free and optimistic."
wrote, "To me, this work represents being cared for and about. It represents a moving forward in beauty and a lightness that suggests cares and woes that weigh one down are now just a faded memory. This is an image I would happily call upon during meditation. It is lovely in all ways."
said, "That's either a really big butterfly or a really little lady. They both seem happy about it, though."
commented, "She is lying down and seems to have the butterfly on a collar and leash; she seems to be in control of her dreams."
posted, "Floating away on the wings of a butterfly."
The Artist's Turn:
Barbara Wyckoff is a member of the East End Arts Council and has been a Fiber Artist for 40 years. Wyckoff said her piece entitled "Freedom Flighter" is about feeling a sense of freedom and a wish to escape the boundaries that society sets up for us.
"It is a fantasy Fiber Art piece of a hidden desire of mine to be able to be light enough and free enough to be lifted up to the heavens by the wings of a butterfly," she said.
