la Petite Chambre

— For a Secret Rendezvous —


Started at the Chicago International Miniatures Show in 2022, in a class taught by June Clinkscales. Originally set to take place in 2020, but with the global pandemic, Chicago was forced to cancel the show for 2 years. So finally after a long wait, I was able to take this class from the incomparable June Clinkscales. Long have I admired her work, and even more, her bubbly and sassy personality. She is a true artist, and I am honored I was able to participate. At the show after the class, I purchased her stunning hand-painted chest, which will fit perfectly on the right-hand side. I am adding lighting from Frank Crescente, Scott’s Lighting, and Luminations by Mr. K. I am not sure if a doll will reside in this piece, or what other accessories it will hold, but I know its complete story will unfold. Even though much has been completed, I still have painting, lighting, the ceiling, drapes and a bed, and accessorizing to do. I can’t wait to see what this becomes!


To-do List:
Install stairs, finish painting interior, install bed wall. Wire the structure for a chandelier, sconces and a candlestick.
Perhaps add a small fireplace on left interior wall? Create bedding and drapery around the bed.
Finish the upper ceiling detail above bed and door. Add opening frame to the exterior, finish the exterior.
