Y2 Art Resolutions is the second year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as a life’s philosophy.
The summer heat has nearly strangled the waves of roadside chicory and Queen Anne’s lace. These fond field flowers have been on my mind. I’ve had it in my head that they would be a fine new design for my oil decanter series. I found just enough to serve as muse for the latest experiment on Sunday.
They lent themselves perfectly to the long bottle shape. What I liked best was how they represent “place.” They are midwest rural roadsides. A reminder of summer. A memory of beautiful full bouquets in an etched glass pitcher. A mental picture of wild fields and blowing winds. They are a point in time that connects my past with my future.
