Perfect Moments – Fall Update

Earlier this year I started what I call the “Perfect Moments Project” as a way to expand the ways I could communicate and share experiences with people who enjoy my artwork. I repeated the process this summer at the Sawdust Festival, asking people to share in their own words what a perfect moment was to them, however they choose to interpret the idea.  And, because it is a two-way thing,  one lucky winner from the summer (selected at random) got to pick one of my  perfect moments captured in glass from the infinite cosmos series in exchange.

Here are some of the perfect moments that people chose to share. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

one of my perfect moments is admiring the beauty of your Art!!
One fine day in July I was camping with my best friend and the love of my life at Mt. Spokeane, Washington. The campsite was empty & we had it to ourselves. We drew lovely pictures and hiked all day. As the sun set, we sat in silence & reflected on our day. That’s when I knew that I loved him <3
