I am an artist living on the island of Nantucket and at Blackberry Farm in a mountain home. My mixed media piece was inspired by the sense of traditions carried on at BF, by the land and changing seasons, and by being surrounded by nature when I am there. I have represented the themes of balance, wellness and time by creating the sunflower as a symbol for the Cherokee medicine wheel. The red petals represent the North, winter and time for quiet rest. The yellow petals represent East, spring and new beginnings. The white petals represent South, summer, growth, creativity and celebrating family. The black petals represent West, autumn, reflection and harvest. The stem leaves show balance. Through reading the BF cookbooks, I know the gardener's plant during certain moon cycles so I have included a moon in the sunflower. The triangles symbolize temporary home, which i think Blackberry takes great pride in making it's guest feel while visiting. Thank you, I loved creating this!

Submission #4

Each quadrant takes you through the four seasons with activities exploring culinary, fitness, relaxation and hobbies.

This was the original concept with each season demonstrating a color, but I like the simplicity of the all green or purple options a bit better!

I live at the beach, but prefer the mountains. I design only as a hobby and love doing it. My husband takes beautiful photographs, which I always borrow to use as inspiration or even in my design.

I work in Oncology Medical Affairs for a large pharmaceutical company. I've stayed at Blackberry many times either as part of a group or as an individual. I am an athletic outdoors sort of woman who grew up in Nashville, have a lakehouse overlooking the Cordell Hull Dam in Catthage and love everything about the beauty of the rolling hills and mtns of middle to eastern TN. Also, I'm a Lady Vols fan, have season tickets, and a supporter of Pat Summitt. I love to cook and certainly enjoy the cuisine at the Farm. My entry (I hope is obvious) is related to "balance". I will look forward to coming back!!! Please let me know if you can open file...I had some trouble loading. Thanks!!

I'm a graphic artist at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, supporting the Shuttle program for 30 years and now supporting the future of KSC with the new SLS vehicle.
I love yoga, walking the beach, and art in general. I'm originally from Michigan so I appreciate the beauty of the change in seasons.

I am a mother of four grown children, and have two small grandchildren. In my free time I love to cook and garden and enjoy the nature around me.

Last year I surprised my husband with a trip to the Beautiful Blackberry Farm for his 60th birthday. We had an incredible time, and I photographed our memories and surroundings. When we returned home, I compiled these photos into a book. Some of these pictures can be seen here.

My FAVORITE picture of my wife EVER, taken at BBF.
It says wellness, vitality, and carefree all at once, which is how we felt at BBF! The simple stamp "preserves" this moment in time (haha!)

I am a practicing physician, specializing in Internal Medicine. My art pieces are contemporary textiles that reference the American quilt.

The instinctive drive to create may be related to the evolutionary success of humans as toolmakers. In ancient and modern times people have sought to bring beauty into everyday life. Creativity through the crafting of objects with functional reference has a place in social pattern. Craft objects reflect the common experiences of many. They link us to our past and express new ideas.

Quilting is grounded in American history, family, community and common experience. Art quilts are a living document of cultural history expressing artistic, emotional and spiritual values, particularly those of women. I use quilts to transpose function and symbol, art and craft, and to express ideals about creativity and community.

Additional images are available and may be viewed on my website www.eleanormccain.net.

I am a stay-at-home mom of two young girls. They both keep my hands full but one especially so because she has special needs. My professional background is corporate communications, but that feels like a lifetime ago. I grew up in Kentucky and appreciate bluegrass music, butter beans and bourbon, especially Pappy Van Winkle. For Father's Day this year, I made my husband griddle cakes. He could tell you that I cried actual tears of joy over the fresh apple cider last November at the Yellowhammer -- it was that good!

And anyone who knows me well could tell you that I think of Blackberry Farm as heaven on earth -- not having a worry or care, with a backdrop of nature's perfect beauty. What is really amazing is that I have found this to be true even when our youngsters are along (and that is saying something!).

I'm glad you are having this contest, not just because I really want to win, but it reminded me how much I enjoy the creative process and an inspiring theme. I am grateful for the reminder -- and opportunity. :-)

I'm a legal secretary in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I was invited to join my brother and his family for a weekend at Blackberry Farm in July. What a sweet, sweet treat.
