US Embassy in Vientiane, Laos

This morning my art piece This and That was picked up to travel to Vientiane, Laos.
It will hang for several years in the US Embassy. This has been in the works for several months, documents were exchanged and signed. But now it has been picked up and it looks so final because it will travel so far. Feelings emerge like dropping of your kid at college. But this time I am not there. So I am releasing my artwork and hope that it will bring joy to the people who will see it. It was certainly fun weaving it with all the plastic wrappers from newspapers. And it is fun to think that a part of our San Antonio community (who supplied so many of the plastic wrappers) will be seen in Vientiane.
