I always love it when I get to create something special for folks in Georgia. Why, you ask? Cause I'm a Georgia boy, born and bred! People often ask me if I'm from the mountains and I always tell them no, but I got here as quick as I could!
This client was a recent visitor to Asheville while staying at the lovely Omni Grove Park Inn. She saw my work on display there and contacted me to create a wall hanging for their home in Fort Valley, Georgia - you may know as the Peach Capital of Georgia.
Anyway, I think it turned out really nciely and can't wait to get a picture to share here of it's forever home once they have it installed.
