Oh my. I absolutely forgot to show you a precious gift I recieved this fall. Every time I look at it, it makes me smile. And makes me feel very calm. And reminds me of what a wonderful time I had at Artprize with her.
A Piece of "The Lake" by Nellie Durand, 2010
Nellie brought this to me when she came to visit. It was enough of a treat just to spend some time with her-but when she gave this to me, I was just about speechless!
The colors are just beautiful and look at the details of the beach grass captured so well. I was able to watch her work earlier when she had an opening at Good Goods in Saugatuck, MI and loved watching her put these together . The color choice and change in value at just the right time captures the essence of the water and waves.
Everything about it-and her-just very special.
Thank you again Nellie for the great time and treasured gift!
