The music lives in the space between the earth and sky...

I went to a Mick Moloney concert last year ... in between songs he talked about where the music lives ... in the space between the earth and sky ...

These two engravings by Jan Luyken from the Rijksmuseum's Rijksstudio have such lovely details. I call the man Sky Above and the woman Earth Below. His eyes are raised; his arms and hands as if blessing the sky. Her eyes are downcast; her arms and hands as if blessing the ground.

I added painted clouds from another Rijksstudio artist to make two panels that are each 27" wide and 36" tall. I printed them on Spoonflower Eco Canvas and turned the edges twice and sewed them with a zigzag stitch. A tension rod and cafe clips -- along with a sheer curtain behind -- make them the perfect thing to wake up to.

You can get your own panel here or visit the Jerseymurmurs Spoonflower shop.
