The work above was inspired by a photo a friend took. You can see the original here:
Nathalie takes wonderful photos; you can see her blog here
And she shares a love of language as evidenced by her other blog here:
I keep a paper file folder (yes, NOT the electronic ones) in my sewing room. When I'm surfing the net and come across a photo that moves me I will often print it, on the back I write in the link info.
I had put the printout of Nathalie's photo in my file two years ago and neglected to put the link on. Since the work is only in shows I didn't worry too much but I had spent HOURS searching the net prior to sending it off trying to locate the original photo.
How funny that it turns out to be from a friends photostream.
Thank goodness she reads my blog!
