so sophie begged for a bunch of chrysanthemums when we were at the market. so when we got home i cut the stems and showed her how to swirl the stems in a vase or rather in this small glass. when i finished showing her how she did it all by herself. she did a great job.
then we made a small hand tied bunch. that was a little hard for here so i had to help her out more but it turned out well. it even stood on its own.
here is my latest elle decor i havent had a chance to go through maybe today.
arent those glasses huge???? too bad! the bride chose the smaller bubble bowls but they still were pretty.
so shiny and reflective
it was a red and black colored themed wedding. we sprayed the aeoniums black. the bowls were filled with succulent cuttings and a red rose.
here is the sweet heart table arrangement
decorated pillars at the entrance of the dance floor
the wall had these little ledges so we put the extra flowers on them around the candles
this wedding took place at a yacht club in the desert. i thought that was funny. it was like a little oasis except it was flaming ass hot.
here is the seating in the sun but everyone got a fan which im sure would come in handy. this place was really pretty and im sure when the sun set it was was even more pretty with all the little twinkle lights and the reception area and bar sat right on a man made lake. can you believe i forgot to take pictures of the bouquets corsages and boutonnieres? i swear if my head wasnt on my head i would definitely leave it somewhere.
the long drive home from coachella valley yesterday evening. coachella valley is a little bit past palm springs about a good hour and twenty minute drive from my home. coachella is also home to a music and art festival every april maybe you have heard of it or maybe not. PJ Harvey played this year but its too hot for me to go and be with thousands of sweaty kids. i am too old and cranky now to enjoy that kind of stuff.
the desert is a very hot place to have a wedding in september but thankfully it wasnt the 110 degrees it was originally forecasted
here are the fields of wind turbines when you drive through palm springs look there are dinosaurs too! i was so happy when we finally arrived home.
you may remember my little drawing from earlier this summer. this one here is printed on photographic glossy paper.
this here is the original watercolor.
here are all three. i think my favorite is the one printed on kraft paper in your lower left hand. did i mention my friend anna is writing a series of semi erotic one shots for each illustration too? we have two done because i work at the pace of extra friggin slow. if you click annaromer you will see the story however i warn you if you go further and happen to find my tumblr there will be things of an adult nature...ahem.... some material some may consider pornographic as well as other things so if that kind of thing offends dont go dont look up my tumblr. i just thought i would warn you okay???
here are the colored linocut and watercolor prints still not in my shop. surprise surprise.
oh i have had these hanging around for a few months now. i finally relisted them.
a really cool plant i grabbed that was sticking out of the shore
jack with a wad of seaweed
my stepdad the kids and my mom
hello from me. my four days were lovely in carlsbad. we went to the beach everyday which was really nice. the surf was intense although i didnt capture it that way.the was a storm in new zealand which created huge waves which meant lots of surfers.when i was young i would not hesitate to put my fins on and grab my body board. my mom kept telling me you better not go out there its dangerous. its a good thing she never saw some of the surf i rode. i may have said this before but i actually have had a concussion from body boarding. oh but that was a long time ago in my mid twenties when there was nothing to lose. there was also a great white shark sighting and two nearby beaches were closed down too. how exciting? there was also a trip to seaworld where at some points i wanted to sell my children. anyway it was nice to get away.
