Use code CYBER30 for 30% off everything in my Redbubble shop. You know that I love the acrylic blocks which feature anything that catches my eye from nature to stained glass but there are also journals, stationery and much more. Fantastic quality all around. Take a peek! The clock is ticking. 🙂

While I missed the glass dresses at Galerie Portheimka, there was another quite stunning exhibit on display. It is actually a permanent display called Glass as Art.

… I peek in windows. And, thank goodness, I did this day as I walked past the Portheimka Galerie, a glass museum.

I thought what I saw in the early morning hours was a new exhibit being installed. Unfortunately for me, it was an exhibit being taken down!

I am grateful for what I did see and to learn of the artist Karen Lamonte. You can view more of her beautiful work on her website: https://www.karenlamonte.com/

I’m having a great time playing with the early autumn light. Use these acrylic blocks as suncatchers or paperweights or both. You can find them in one of my online shops by clicking here.

I’m hoping to expand the collection throughout the autumn in time for holiday needs but I think they make unique gifts anytime of year.

In addition to my own images, I see exciting opportunities to work with the digitized images of great works of art that are now available for use in the public domain.  The creative journey continues. 🙂

Photograph by Rodrigo Larios

I’d previously shared in “when you look up” how a photograph of the painted ceilings of Trinity Church had inspired designer Donna McNett to produce a vibrantly hued men’s tie, bow tie and pocket square collection. She did an amazing job working with a single photograph to produce something truly unique that celebrates the beauty orchestrated by painter John La Farge and presents it with a modern twist.

For 2019 we hope to collaborate once more in the production of a matching shawl and perhaps silk square. Stay tuned for further updates about that! Meanwhile there are still a few ties and pocket squares on the shelves of the shop. Drop by to see for yourself.

In a book I found a picture and some text describing the decorative frieze band running along the upper walls of the tower inside Trinity Church. A bold, geometric pattern that struck me as multicultural. Very John La Farge. That was all the inspiration needed to grab my camera and try to find this pattern for myself.

It is a detail extremely hard to see from the floor without binoculars or a telephoto lens. My point and shoot was good enough. Working with the image was a creative challenge that turned out quite nice, I think. The final design, while first being executed as a scarf (16 x 72), is quite versatile.

The scarf will soon be available in the shop at Trinity Church. By then I may have come up with a suitable name for the design. 🙂

… what do you see? Well when you look up inside Trinity Church in the City of Boston, in the nave, you see a beautiful painted ceiling with abstract patterns and artistically rendered script. I shared a fuzzy photograph with Donna McNett of DonaScarves who then worked her magic to design a stunning menswear collection that includes a necktie, bow tie and pocket square. Available exclusively at Trinity Church. Shipping is available. Send inquiries to artandarchitecture@trinitychurchboston.org. Or leave me a note and I’ll pass your message along. 🙂
