Ladies in the Garden

I'm so glad I read an article somewhere a few years ago that talked about the trendiness of taking photos in unpolished settings. Instead of a precise studio setup these objects in the magazine were in all sorts of weird locations. I promptly took my loom out to the yard and the title of my blog was born.

So here is a very tiny lady (the warp is only about 1 1/4 inches wide). She appeared today, in fact she posed for the summer plein air painter.

Don't ask me why I do this. I want to make this guy a little VISA sign, see if he can up his sales.

It was hot today, so later I found her cooling off in the iris.

She's a super tiny t...

Another piece I took to a show in town, so before I left I put her in the yard too. I know it's not right for everything, but it feels so liberating.

Embossed, Stamped, and Burnished , 10 x 20 inches, painted background

Happy Summer!
