Friends' art in the mail

We got the loveliest surprise in the mail on Friday. Well, we picked it up on Friday but only got to open it today and it was the perfect warming gift for a dull and misty day.

Back in April, Jennifer had some pieces in a show in Connecticut, and lucky for us, it was shown online as well so we could pore over the works from way over here and make a purchase.  

So here is The Layers of Time 3 by Jennifer Coyne Qudeen

It looks pale and gentle here (probably the soft mist light we have all around us today), but it has warmth as well.


It was so nice to place it in one of our art corners - it looks as if it has been there forever, it fits so well with the little porcelain cloud bowls below and Barry's silver bowls in front of it.




And I love the details - sigh....






What a wonderful addition to our home - it has had me smiling all day!

  2. Lucky you to have something by Jennifer. She creates the most beautifully considered combinations of texture, shape and material. A fitting addition to your growing collection by the looks of it.

    1. The perfect description Lesley! I love the textures, the colours, the text, the lines, the stitching...it all comes together so beautifully. This pieces feels worn, fragile and yet full of strength...
