Christmas Eve saw the return of The Organic Garden from the Art In Embassies program. It’s spent the last three years gracing the dining room wall of the Ambassador’s Residence in Vientiane, Laos. I am once again simultaneously proud and humbled to have taken part in this U.S. Department of State program.
They took excellent care of it, and returned it in pristine condition.
It’s been hectic leading up to the holidays, and I haven’t had much studio time. For the sake of my mental well being I stole some time to start some new needlefelted pieces about The River. They are experimental; I’m not sure where I’m going with them. I have this one readied for some hand stitching and possibly beading. I love the texture I’ve achieved with the different wool and silk fibers.
I’m looking forward to the New Year, and creating and sharing lots of new work and exciting ventures. Best wishes to all going forward.
