my sketchbook and beloved ink pot

 yves taralon & francois huotin in francois' atelier

Nadine, this is for you! I was intrigued too so I went on a little google adventure and found that the alphabet
was created by this wonderful man : Francois Huotin, a not so vintage frenchman. I was sure the image was from the 1800's if not earlier.  fascinating! Then, I read on to learn that he was a trained landscpape architect ( a career path I was once on)  who mostly creates fantastical garden designs in old world etched perfection.  yum!  Then, I realized that he is the artist of some beautiful dishware by Hermes I've been lusting over!  And to top it off? The picture of his atelier I had saved as my dream studio inspiration is his!  God! i love that. :) when it all clicks! ...and that was an intended pun! :)
ink, parchment, France and twisted tree limbs...a sweet stirring in my soul today.
dreaming of blossoms,

Computer is in hospice

so sad, but not really. it means i will finally be upgrading and going back to Mac! i'm conserving her strength.
so afraid if i turn it on it'll crash and i'll lose all my files!
at least i can check email and post boring messages like this one on my daughter's macbook.
i know, that's not ok.
she has one and i don't

Coincidence, NO?

Anonymous Works is a really fun way to find odd, beautiful things. Quick, easy, like Tumblr.
I am sooooo busy its nuts! Good busy though. Lots of exciting projects in the works, things I can't
share with you yet - but I hope the wait will be worth it!
Color Crew, my kid/public art project, is gearing up for a lantern parade in April. Commissions in the studio, changes for Milady Productions and just good green spring vibes in the valley! Saw our first new neighbor yesterday, a tiny ,wobbly black calf. :) Oh, and i'm looking for a orphaned goatie.  hee hee

Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde    must get
