I found this dried piece of kelp at Carmel when we visited Val and Bruce this summer. It had an interesting textured pattern and purple translucence that reminded me of stained glass. So often artists and designers find inspiration in nature. How often have you heard, " Let's bring the more of the outdoors indoors...) in those HGTV makeover shows? I think an industrial designer or fabric artist would do back flips over the surface pattern of this leaf (unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice).
On another note, the 50/50 Show came down on Saturday. If you bought a bird, I will contact you this week to arrange delivery of your painting(s).
Thanks to everyone who helped make this a very successful exhibit for me, it went far beyond my expectations and I am honored that you would choose to have a piece of my art in your homes. Thank you!
