I recently went to Ketchikan, Alaska to visit family, and like any good tourist, I went shopping.
I collect coffee cups and became truly inspired by the art work of Sue Coccia at a local art shop I wondered into with my mom. I fell in love with the exquisite detailing that Sue puts into her art and the intricacy of the wooden puzzles that were available for purchase. While the puzzles were out of my price range, I did walk away with a new cup that was adorned with a whale design.
I soon became intrigued by the idea of creating an art piece using her design style. I haven't started yet, but it's on my list of things to do.
I think it (whatever "it" will turn out to be) will make a wonderful gift.
