This is my most recent creation. I designed and created this entire window over the last week as I prepared for the Dustbowl Market that was held yesterday in downtown Norman. With the exception of the 30+ mph "wind sweeping down the plain" it was a great experience. Lots of good company, getting to see many friends, family and artists all in the accompaniment of great music. (It was in conjunction with the 3rd annual Norman Music Festival.)
This window is one of my favorite newer creations. I am not usually the butterfly type, but I truly love the multitude of patterns contained in this Cavallini paper. I have TONS of old plates, china, etc. I was able to retrieve some of my vintage aqua/green dishes to compliment the paper nicely. The tile coordinates very well with the butterflies. The word "DREAM" was created by cutting down glitter tile. Talk about cool. I love anything flashy and that definitely gave the window some extra pizazz. I guess a customer loved it too. I had just finished grouting it yesterday morning, and it sold during the show. I think the grout was still drying. I wish my art always flew off the shelf like that!
