over the river - the end

chair drawing :: fromthevine.jpg

the last three drawings to show you.

i am overwhelmed by your kind words on the work. THANK YOU. it's so daunting and scary to put work out there. it's like you hold your breath for the response. and so i really really appreciate the time that you have taken to look and respond. it means a lot.

the one above was my attempt to meld the chair and the wallpaper - it's like the design grew from the chair [which is an anthropologie chair by the way]

this one was also a hope of mine....

i recognize the astrid chair! (is that totally sick that i've memorized the names of anthropologie furniture?)
but the piece i love, love, love is the bed one. soooooooo beautiful. i can't take my eyes off it.

Lisa these are stunning. I am loving the transparent effect of the durarlar (that is just fun to say, rolls of the tongue) creating layers and spaces. The bed is my favorite. Risa and I will have to arm wrestle for it.

clearly.

I hold my breath when I see your work....like if I breath it will disappear. Oh how I wish I could see your show in person!

What if furniture actually melded into nature's surroundings? a beautiful fairytale image (I love this chain of thought). Love them all, the trees in particular.
Blair said…
Lisa, I love the colors, the images, and the drawing with the thread, this whole series is just breathtaking to me. I hope to see it all in person one day.

Hope you are well, miss our lazy days of emailing when we could ignore life's obligations. Well, sort of...you know what i mean..xo

Oh Lisa, this work is so beautiful I can hardly bear it. I seriously considered getting a loan to buy the grassy bed, it is the most divine work I've set eyes on.

The entire show is such a delight, it's fantastic to see where you are going with your work, the thoughts and ideas behind it all - you fill me with joy!
