Things have been going well in the Sanders' household, and we've been so blessed with the generosity of our friends and family during this time of newness with our little Guthrie. We've had lots of visitors; gifts of food, time, goodies for Guthrie, and more beautiful artwork to adorn his room. I'll tell ya what, this guy has some of the best artwork in the house in his room.
I've posted before about some of the great gifts and purchases of handmade works in Guthrie's room. If you would like to see prior postings with more handmade goodies for Guthrie's room, you can find them here or here.
Here are a couple more great gifts we've received:
A hand-woven basket by artist (and ceramic student of mine) Bev Nagy. She's currently an affiliate artist at McColl Center of Visual Art and is currently working on some sculptural woven pieces.
This is a beautiful drawing of an eastern screech owl (aptly identified by my bird-loving brother-in-law Tom) by another ceramic student of mine, Betsy Birkner. As if one couldn't tell by her amazing detail, she used to be a scientific illustrator.
And, finally, an absolutely incredible painting by my good friend and favorite painter, Duy Huynh. He so thoughtfully painted this specifically for Guthrie and told me that the colors and patterns were inspired by my pottery, which makes this piece so special to us.
And it looks totally stunning on the orange wall!
