|Only 500 Returning Meadow 9 illuminations each of three sizes will be made from the original 18”x18” colored pencil, gold and silver illumination, Returning Meadow, that was digitally arranged to make a 9-pointed star and set in a pink border. I like to take photos throughout an illumination's design process and found there was something particularly soothing about the stage of Returning Meadow before I added black flowers. Thus, I made Returning Meadow 9 to reflect that all spring color palate. © Bridgette Kelling|
