Whispering Marsh and Rainy Night

August 22nd, 2011

Architect Glenn Keyes and his wife Cyndy commissioned a diptych batik of kimono silk for the home.  Glenn designed the lovely space. The batik was requested to be rendered in blues, greys, tans, greens, some yellow, red, purple, and copper with no pinks or oranges to accommodate the space. I took lots of photographs of their natural surroundings and was able to perceive the way this landscape would look as if from the air.  The photographs led me in both color way and design. I had full freedom to create beautiful art as the clients trusted me. We were both totally happy with the installation.  I waxed out a moon behind a dense rainfall, inspired by the batik “Rainy Night” that the Keyes saw hanging in my studio.
