More Found Things

 I found this piece that I must have stuck away. I remember it was inspired by the key and keyholes of the wardrobe when I did the residency at Chateau de Chassy ten years ago- another adventure in France. I didn't finish it- maybe I will now that I have found it again.I really want to focus on work inspired by my travelling but first I have to make some work inspired by the theme Herbarium for Italia Invita in Cremona in Italy next year  in May as i am invited guest artist.

The big furniture does not arrive until next week so that makes getting any work done pretty difficult as I really have nowhere much to work.We did get a Christmas tree though despite the lack of furniture.It does look lonely but is also a bright spark in the corner. I am slowly getting more used to this place


This is another pomegranate piece that I made for our Atelier Printemps Sacre exhibition  at the end of Ocotber. it is for sale for $45 US inclusive of postage. We will be having another exhibition  in the second half of May next year.

Those who can travel to distant lands, can still inspire those of us who cannot through such work as this. Thanks for the inspiration. Your use of color and movement please me. What a gift.

hmm the keys piece looks very similar to the journal quilt I have of yours Dijanne ;o)

I hope you will soon be settled in your new home, can't believe you were in Europe a year it has just flown by,

take care, Frances

looks great, hope you are settled in Geelong. I am getting bounces from your e-mail address - wondering what you would like us to do about getting our "my place" pieces back? Would you send us all an e-mail so we know what is happening? Take care,
