While attending the opening of the Wild Medicine Exhibit at the New York Botanical Gardens, we were pleasantly surprised to have our eyes stumble upon the gorgeous sculptures of acclaimed Spanish artist Manolo Valdés. Created specifically for Garden’s plant collections, Valdés vividly displays the relationship between art and his muse, nature. As you can see in the picture below, even the birds love the sculptures! With some of the seven sculptures reaching heights of 17ft, the gentle yet dynamic headdresses of the sculptures, which include ferns, oak and maple leaves, windblown palms, and butterflies, establish a romantic/serene/modern presence to the Gardens. Unfortunately, the sculptures are only up until May 26th.
While in Munich, I got to see incredible jewels like these adorable jeweled snails at Hemmerle. Read about my visit to the German jewelry house on the blog! @hemmerle #jeweledsnails #sold #inspiredbynature #munich #hemmerle
Painting white and painting black are always the two challenging colors!
For an upcoming show at @axispioneersquare in February.
