Exuberance! I can’t help but want to add the exclamation point.
- Joyously unrestrained and enthusiasic
At Nutmeg Designs, we desire to allow for the possibility of exuberance, to let our joy in the studio resonate into those who experience our art. This piece, made with Youghiogheny glass, now resides with a family of exuberant folks, who are some of favorite people: George, Judy and Valerie Balock. I tinted the grout a warm shade of yellow ochre that looks as if I made it just for their dining room, and the mosaic harmonizes with their zest for living. George and Judy just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, and we know that exuberance played a role in their partnership.
There’s something joyful in brown tones alone. Warm earth instead of grey clouds, even if clouds do bring needed rain.
Loved your link to an interview with posture. A good reminder to move.
You’d like this poem I think. Joy reminded me of it. http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org/index.php?date=2012/04/04
Such serendipity! Kristen Lindquist was a classmate of mine at the University of Oregon MFA program, and I was looking forward to hearing her poem on Writer’s Almanac, and you gave me the link!!
This is beautiful, joyful, and yes, definitely exuberant! What a delight it must be for your friends to see this all the time. It must lift their spirits every time it catches their eyes.
