Southern Hospitality sold! It is always lovely when someone responds to my work with enough commitment they want to take it to live with them. And when they chose a favorite, it is even better.
One of the traditions I started is that when I sell a full size piece of art, i buy art from another artist - either directly or in a gallery. This time I fell in love with jewelry by Michael Michaud for Silver Seasons. It is inspired by the vivid purple bean of the lablab purpureus, known at the Purple Hyacinth - a vine.
The beans are purple hand cast glass supported by patinaed bronze.Wearing a seed form really appeals to me. Love the shapes and the color (not showing well in my photo) is great.
How do you celebrate?
