I first noticed the art of Owen Mortensen at a local art festival here in Dallas last year. Upon first walking to his booth I must have completely stopped in my tracks and clogged up traffic as I stood there in awe. I fell in love with the simplicity and the mix of organic natural objects and geometric shapes and structures. I’m definitely a sucker for the mixing of these two worlds. His work has inspired a secondary idea for this month’s project – something of a series of constellations made from natural objects. I’ve yet to fully work out the details – but I’ve got the rough idea in my head and am ready to start experimenting with some things! Be sure to watch the video at the end detailing the process of one of his pieces, including a great time lapse of the entire process! Very cool stuff!

Welcome everyone! You’ll notice the blog has a nice, new look to it! The original was something I really just sorta slapped together to get things started.. so I’m happy to have finally found a new, cleaner look that has more of the features I want. I’m still tweaking things and working on a custom header, so you will likely discover new little nuggets of goodness here and there in the next few weeks.
I thought it fitting with the welcome of the new look here to show off the summertime wreath I made today as well! It’s been probably a decade since I’ve made a wreath.. and oooh i forgot how much fun it is! I am positively in love with the colors and textures on this little guy! Hoping you like the new face to my door as well as to my blog.. Would love to hear what you think of either! =)
