a recent installment





"california poppies"


Just before Christmas I had a man come to my studio asking to buy the 9 piece set of my "Petite Felt Gardens". He said he had a "Frank Lloyd Wright modelled home and the pieces would look great in his house", the plan was to surprise his wife with them as a Christmas present. He also commissioned me to make an additional felt garden containing California Poppies. He asked me to go to his house and decide where the artwork should be hung. While they were away travelling a neighbor let me in and Teresa and I hung the pieces. I was a bit nervous about putting 9 holes in the wall, but was so happy with how the installment looked in their home once i got it up. It was a nice touch mixed in with their beautiful modern furniture and the mid-century modern feel of their gorgeous house. The man asked me to take a picture of the installment and email it to him and on he printed off the picture and gave the picture to his wife for Christmas to let her know when she got home it was waiting for her.....*sigh*..... Isn't this whole arrangement so thoughtful of him?
