Dopaliscious 1.2: Mother Nature – Herbal Garden Party

This couple were winners of the Thrive DC auction of a private dinner for six to help prevent and end homelessness. When we discussed an inspiration for the dinner the lady of the house informed me that there were a variety of herbs integrated into her back yard’s landscape. Together we decided the theme of an herbal garden party would be fun and give her a chance to share her bounty with friends. “But Brent, The Dopaliscious is about art. What’s with the herbs?” True, and I challenge you to find a more expressive, consistent and universal artist than mother nature.
