What a hectic fall/winter its been since Brickbottom Open Studios and Thanksgiving. I will have to get caught up with what I’ve been up to — new ideas, photo safaris around my town, experiments with my new camera. In the meantime, here are a few shots of my worktable leading up to Yule. I was inspired by the amazing, rococo work of French artist, Laetitia Mieral. Check her out at her website, Merveilles en Papier.
I can’t really carry off full-on rococo. I love it. It’s gorgeous. I adore everything 18th century, but I’m possibly more Georgian than Baroque, more built-in cabinets than putti-painted ceilings. Still, enchanted by Laetitia’s work, I experimented with some paper bows, and some more modern-style baubles, to deck the halls for Christmas. Still learning.
