It always helps to have someone else look at your work when you are trying to solve a problem in a miniature setting. I have to confess that I was so frustrated with my Bodega Bay scene that I started researching Frida Kahlo’s garden again as a backup idea. But then, Ron and Katy Hoess stopped by for a meeting and they brought fresh eyes to my mockup. Just by moving a few things around, changing a few angles, and suggesting some scale modifications, they were able to set me on a better path (to Bodega Bay, not to Mexico: sorry Frida). Thanks Katy and Ron (who is chair this year and next of the miniature settings class at the Philadelphia Flower Show).
