honest mistakes happen in the pursuit of perfection

The above quote popped into my head last night as I was leaving my studio.

I was diligently working last night on the third wall hanging for the trip tic. I was a bit shocked when I noticed that the colors did not dry the same as the other two pieces! It was dark when I took one last look and the lighting was not so great in the flat...keep your fingers crossed it was tired eyes and that it will all look fine when I see them in the morning.

Here is a picture of the middle piece and the third drawing. You can see how the design passes from one piece t the next.

On a happier note, I headed to Vac on Monday with a group of friends. We went to visit a company dealing in antiques. There were two warehouses full of old furniture, iron gates and all sorts of odds and ends! I fell in love with two things that I just had to have...

These two beauties are Zsolnay from 1910-1930! They look so modern!
I am curious to see other pieces by Zsolnay in this same style. I haven't been able to find anything on the internet that comes close to this style or color.

This was their home in the warehouse...
...their new home in our flat:)
This piece is from around 1900 and the green is why I thought this was so special. The green is close to being a lime green. I have seen so many pots like this in Hungary but none with such a bright green color.
It is thirsting for some flowers.
I will let you know how the wall hanging looks....fingers crossed...
