One of Ginny's creations using glass beads, vintage
jewelry and family mementos.
|Ginny and Dan, December 2011|
Recently on my blog, I had mentioned meeting Ginny and Dan through some mutual friends. We met them again at our friend's Christmas party and Ginny and I talked of getting together. Ginny is an artist and her husband Dan is also an artist and architect. Yesterday was the day for Ginny and me to meet.
We met for breakfast in Dallas at the Corner Bakery. We had a good conversation, actually a very deep conversation (love those kind) and learned more about each other's lives. We left the Corner Bakery for Ginny's house, she lived nearby. I had been wanting to see Ginny's and Dan's work for a long time.
The moment I stepped inside Ginny's home, I was overwhelmed! I loved Ginny's art and was impressed at the amount of work she has completed since she started doing Zentangle last September. I didn't know what Zentangle was either but it is a "method of creating beautiful images from repetitive designs and patterns."
Even Ginny's switch plates are works of art!
|Wow! An example of Ginny's work! This piece may be|
an entry in a local art show, she is making a decision. She was explaining how
she sees images in her designs that appear after
she has completed her drawings.
|Ginny had these works displayed on a table, I love|
the arrangement and the framing.
|She is dedicated, she works on her art everyday.|
|Of course I loved this trio! What great designs|
and colors combinations!
|Ginny and Dan made this chandelier!|
She strung together the prisms and crystals. I love the
shadows cast upon the ceiling.
|Dan made this special stand for Ginny. Hanging|
are more beautiful strands she made for another chandelier. What makes their chandeliers more
special is she incorporates old family pins, broaches and other sentimental
pieces into the design
I love chandeliers, prisms and crystal so I just stood there looking
at these and was totally mesmerized!
These pieces will find themselves in one of
|In Ginny's studio ... it's fun to see behind the scenes.|
|Ginny standing in her studio!|
It was full of treasures!
|This beautiful back splash was made by Ginny!|
|I also found it most impressive that she can |
also paint in a realistic style.
We left Ginny's home and headed to mine. I gathered up some of my work to show Ginny and took her on a tour of the house. We talked about different kinds of papers, books, ink pens, my airbrush, ideas ...
It was a wonderful day! There are so many things I wanted to share about Ginny, Dan and their family's art, I am going to have to do a part II of this blog. Wait until you see Dan's art ...
