Felix the Devo/Carmen Miranda cat…having fun with the kids last night…at the poor cat’s expense. I am sure he is thinking…”If I didn’t get the Fancy Feast and Temptations…well…I’d be outa here!” He loves it when my desk is filled with paper.
A new flower pot at the front door this year. For fall, I have found some great mums. We painted the house last summer a dark gray, and installed new lighting and hardware. Lots more to do…
I’m cleaning my office, and came across these dwgs I did for a B and B in Ucluelet. I love this type of quick sketch with minimal colour…I think they are great value for the client.
A few vignettes around the house. The first photo has a couple of my favourite things…a leather and silver box made and given to me by my friend Ivan, and my favourite piece of art “First at the Beach”. I also love my new Voluspa candle and sea fan. The nude sculpture is by me; I did it at a class at the Florida Keys College. A cashmere throw in a grey blue is a favourite, as is the pillow I have covered in an Osborne and Little fabric. This side of my home has great light, and is now overflow space for my office.
Cleaning the files and office is reminiscent…these are from the very first ID project I did on my own out of school. I just ran into the client on the ferry a few days ago. I love little elevations…once I have elevations done in CAD, I can draw and sketch to scale.
My thesis project…the Salal Spa (now, that brings back stressful feelings!)
The Ucluth Lodge and Spa entry. I love watercolour for renderings, especially because the concept was watery. These are a couple I have decided to keep in a file, although I am trying to be brutal on the clutter this time around.
I’ve switched my DR and Family Room, and I like the cozy, step-down-into feeling of our new Family Room. We watched Under the Tuscan Sun yesterday, and it felt cozy in there. Some of my art is displayed on my red wall…I like them set all together.
What a dark September morning…I can really feel a change in the seasons.
The cleaning continues…
I can’t believe that I am showing you this! Hope your are having a great weekend! Are you fall cleaning as well?
