Talk about an ego stroke!!!
This week, Swedish Fiber Artist Pasi Valimaa visited our studios at UArts. Among his many international exhibitions and honors, Pasi is among the few ever awarded the Prince Eugen Medal for outstanding artistic achievement by King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. OMG! He really liked my work!!! He even told me he might steal technique! LOL
Pasi was intrigued by the unnamed coral piece and Genesis (both shown on my website), but was particularly enamoured with an imagery piece I was working on earlier this fall:
The piece is still a work in progress as I decide the direction for finishing, but his enthusiasm surely does make me more anxious to get back to work on it!
