today i had my latest craft (art?) project installed!
i am so excited because i like the way it turned out. i was secretly coveting a ballet stage that was created by one of my favorite artist, beatriz milhazes and was inspired to create something for the store.
in typical suzisouchi fashion, i originally planned to hand cut with an exacto knife lanterns and
snowflakes and lace-like shapes. then, well here's where my crazy sets in...(or denial?) i was going to hand color with markers different design patterns.
because i've got TONS OF TIME and clearly not crazy
i was then going to hand bead around these shapes.
reality set in and i saw the light.
well more like i saw that i already work many many many many hours
and am in the midst of selling spring at the store, buying & knitting for fall 2010
did i mention i'm in the middle of designing my spring 2011 collection.
YES, I AM CLEARLY CRAZY AND LIVING ON A PLANET
that has 50hrs a day.
so, HERE, is my reality based mobile that makes me very happy.
last friday, we had craft day at the studio to help me
get all the shapes cut out, spray mounted and paint & prune the manzanita branches!
then many nights of beading and voila!
i hope you like it and it makes you happy to see it when you visit the store.
there is so much color in the store right now
the grey, wet, rainy skies of portland.
