Dear Chicago House,
It is snowing in my garden today … snowing blossom that is….but hey in Chicago you never know.
I couldn’t help myself, I collected some fallen petals and used them as my medium for creating a piece of art…albeit a piece of temporary art.
I took a shabby old terracotta pot, plugged the hole in the bottom with duct tape, filled the pot with water and then floated my petals on top. I picked a shabby dirty pot because I wanted to play off the purity of the petals.
I don’t like to toot my horn but at high resolution these photos were amazing and I am seriously considering using them to create some more wall art.
Of course it won’t be the first time I have created pieces from usual objects, I built an orb from driftwood and framed sea glass
