My inspiration started in fourth grade when our teacher read to us from a book about the adventures of Marco Polo. I was entranced! It became a favorite day dream...traveling ancient roads, trading silk, precious stones, beads, meeting Kublai Khan and later I continued these dreams to include camel caravans carrying incense through the desert. None of these daydreams included robbers, dirt, heat, bad smells, etc...!
Each wall of this caravan box was a project in itself and then the connection to one another was also important. So it was like creating six pieces. I'm stopping the box series for now and going to pick up a project slower with less color, less demands...we shall see how long that will last?!
