When the surround suggests a task, and schedule and light permit its doing, and the result is more air, more clear surface – there can only be pleasure. I like to clean house when it feels like this!

In the past, I have enjoyed mixing up what is interior, what is background, what is sky, what is building – all by interchanging fabrics. The results have at times been what I want. Other times, it’s been too much. Right now, I like the idea of working with the usual expectations of in/out for awhile.
