Inspired by years visiting and working close to the Seattle Center area, from the Space Needle, to the Pacific Science Centerand it's dinosaurs, the undulating Frank Gehry designed Pop Culture Museum (formerly known as the Experience Music Project), the Monorail, and Dale Chihuly's floating glass orbs at the Garden and Glass. . . all nestled along the edge of Puget Sound. My home. Although I did not realize it when I started this piece it soon became apparent so many of my favorite memories of that area were all represented. Even the Seattle Aerospace Museum! The small character represents myself, a passionate gardener, faithfully tending the young orbs which are sentient and love to power her spaceship in return for her care. I guess you could call this my happy place!
