The event last weekend was a lot of fun. Maybe too much to be the four letter word "work". But this day, WORK was a garden tour put on by the Cultural Landscape Foundation, of a private garden in Louisville that Matthew and I have been fortunate enough to have been working on pieces for over a year.
The first of our commissions at this beautiful estate was lovingly titled 'The Sun Rail' by our client and their Landscape designer, J.P. Shadley of Boston Massachusetts. (The entire grounds are featured on the Shadley Associates website here: http://www.shadleyassociates.com/portfolio-Ohio-River).

J.P. explained how he worked with artists to achieve his vision for the place, and had story boards of the different processes & different artists. It was a pleasure too, to meet some of the other artists with work on the site.

In the photo below, you can see where J.P. chose elements from previous work we had done (3 vignettes on the left), and chose things he wanted to see in his client's railing (sketches at top). At the bottom are some process photos he chose to use on his story board about us.
