Once again I thought I wanted to try working with some gypsophila, a material that I still don’t quite understand. It’s an unruly puff of tiny white blooms that I keep trying to use in a pleasing way. maybe it’s that I need to just keep at it until I “get it” . That’s probably the best way to get to know the possibilities on any material, to just try using it over and over again until that light bulb moment occurs and you get that idea you’ve been search for. For now this is my best effort of the day.
Yesterday Frederick and I did get a chance to go down to the Tidal Basin to see the Cherry Blossoms. This is the 100th Anniversary of the gift of these incredibly beautiful trees from Japan. Who could have know that these graceful trees would over time become such a cherished treasure for our city.
