After what was the best
difficult moving days we’ve ever had
(go here read about that),
the horses and many shields
and cresting boards
are in our studio,
which now has a large room
called the “Jantzen Beach Stable”.
The dappled grey water horse and an armored horse share the lobby, though
I admit they are a bit dwarfed in stature by the Portland Horse’s amazing mane.
What a joy to see coming into work!
The Parker Ponies rest on famous Mason Monterey sofas
in the room where furniture from the historic Frank Crowe Estate resides.
The horses (and carousel) were born within a decade of the lovely colorful
Monterey furniture and they feel simpatico.
The long cresting boards are laid out for assessment, above.
It’s not all about the horses, though.
Chariots and shields are covered with
lions and roosters and cherubs and posies…
It is a joy to be around them!
