Illuminated Aspens

illuminated-aspens

Lookie what I got in the mail yesterday!! Several years ago Gerrie and I decided to swap art: I made her a creche set and she’d make me indigo aspens. Every time Gerrie would post anything with aspens I’d wonder if they’d be mine. My heart skipped a beat when she showed this one — I knew this was IT!

 

As soon as I opened the box, I looked around for a wall to put it on. Although most of my blue art is in the bedroom, the orange on this really wanted to be in the living room. I took down one of my pieces and held the aspens up… and then I realized that just below it were my pair of custom mod birds made by Gerrie’s talented daughter, Lisa!  Ah, perfect.
