Buckingham road

Is ready for the world to see! This home portrait took a bit longer due to summer vacation interruptions, but it's done before the summer is. I was able to feature the home owners favorites like the passport page, the sheet music, the tweed and the wedding veil. And I had fun with the mod selection of upholstery fabrics! Oh and the patterned plastic bag, my heart went a flutter when I saw it!

Let's start with a few detail shots:
the tweed with a bit of a passport page
sheet music with a wedding veil layer stitched
mod pattern stitched for texture and tone, and printed plastic leaves to suggest trees
the perfect fabric to suggest flowering bushes

aaaahhh......

Summers are tough. Tough for me to spend any real time in my studio that is. But I do get to spend lots of time in nature, so that compensates.

Here are few views that I enjoyed recently and inhaled deeply.....



Hope your summer is going well!
