Today I had to run to Santa Rosa on an errand. I also had the bright idea to pop in and check on my art now installed at the Kaiser Hospital in Santa Rosa. I took time to look at a lot of the art and it was beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Mine was the only textile I saw until a large Tree of Life handwoven rug caught my eye from a long hallway’s distance. Gorgeous!
My work Currents #8 was beautifully framed, mounted on linen and encased in plexiglass. It hangs opposite the elevator on the 2nd floor of the hospital. The art consultant sent me a photo of it installed which was out of focus and yellowed which I imagined it to be a result of the lighting and plexiglass; so I took several shots with my phone and while they looked great on the tiny screen, they were a bit blurry in real time. I post just one here so you get the general idea.
Last year as I filtered out what direction to take with my art, I decided to pursue installing my work in more corporate settings. This is the first of several which has been recently installed. A friend asked if I was thrilled to see it there in real time? It is a bit surreal actually as when I finish a piece I let go of it. This piece had traveled to a few exhibits before being sold. As much as I hate hospitals though I may go visit it from time to time…or not!
