Reusing the pomegranate branch from Sunday’s class I made this nagiere arrangement. The branch has been stripped of it’s leaves so that I could give the feeling of a later part of autumn. Bare driftwood, a fading yellow hosta, and some balloon vine are the elements I used to finish the design. Nice movement, and a gentle feel of autumn. I’m feeling a bit lacking on my creativity at this point, and there is an increasing need to re-charge my batteries and do some more inventive work. More inventive work takes more planning and some extended time for execution, and once I am re-energized I can give it a whirl. For today I am simply happy to be able to create something,doingthe daily work has been a big step for me.

    Keep going Keith! I love this Nageire. It gives me a good feeling of autumn. I’m quite sure doing work every day for one year will pay off. And I do understand that it is not easy.

    This gave my a great opportunity to look back at the work, I really love this so much more now than at the time I made it. It’s funny how you begin to appreciate things more over time and see them in a new way!
