the art

here we go . . .









i was commissioned by a woman who, from what i can tell,
is a go-getter
turns out we went to the same high school in missouri
so, of course she is above average! :)

despite my red & white colt pride,
i tend not to be such a go-getter these days
or at least, it is fair to say, i like to "go get"
at my own pace

but she gave me a large task:
six pieces
in about 8 weeks
one word was given
that each person who will be receiving these pieces
wants to be inspired by each day
and just one adjective to describe each woman's style
was given to me to guide my process.

yikes!

but, when you put a little jet fuel behind me,
i kind of don't mind so much!

I love the art work Cara. Can you maybe help me make something for Isaac's bed room or my house? It would be fun to have some of your artwork in my home in NZ. :)Maybe we can work on something as a team and you could show me your stuff. Did you know that Isaac is going to be a brother? We are 9 weeks prego and loving life. Looking forward to seeing you before the summers end.
