This show was a challenge. I had worked out the mechanics and the space, but I wasn't satisfied with the look. We took a Sunday drive and walked the beach in February, and on the way home it hit me that I had drawn everything with a ruler. I stayed up all night redrawing.

Charlotte built her web in the corner of the door opening. Several webs in various states were used, constructed of metallic materials and spotlighted.
