Wood and Wool

Our friend Tuan, who we met when we lived in St. Louis, made this lovely artwork that we've been so excited to display in our new place.  It was the first piece of artwork we hung when we unpacked and I absolutely love it.  I wanted to share a picture of it right away, but our wall where we were displaying it just never seemed to do it justice.

First it was that our walls were tan.  Hideous, terrible tan as far as the eye could see.  Here's where we hung it.  In that teeny wall in the entryway.


These are just the staging pictures from the house listing.  Then we had the walls painted green and it looked so much better.


But it still looked a little lonely. I just wanted to make something special to go with it. Enter my new love of weaving. I tried out some variegated warp for this one.


Here it is almost finished, still on the loom. Also late at night because that's when I finished it.


And here it is in its new home!


My favorite thing about this grouping is that it looks like a little person! Anyway, thanks so much to Tuan for this special piece! We think of you and Leah and Pasha every single time we walk through the room.
