Caralee Woods of Kanab, Utah, sent me a cactus illusion she had in her home at Eagle Mountain Lake, Texas, several years ago. She writes,
Here’s another cactus illusion, one of my favorite photos. It was taken in a hall that led from the kitchen to the garage in the Fort Worth house. You will remember there was a series of three small square windows in which I put little pots of small cacti. The sun would shine at a particular angle, making a shadow on the white opposite wall.
Caralee Woods and Jimmy Henley live in Kanab, Utah, and are building a strawbale compound. You can visit their website Building Our Strawbale Home! Caralee was a regional book representative for Harper and Row before she retired. Her husband, Jimmy Henley, was the undergraduate dean at Texas Christian University and taught sociology. He was a grade school and high school friend of mine in Brownwood, Texas.
Their home at Eagle Mountain Lake near Fort Worth was featured in Architectural Digest [n. d.] before they sold it and moved to Kanab. Their home was built with many of the lines and forms of the Kimball Art Museum in Fort Worth.
I used to house sit and take care of their companions (doggies and kitty cats) while they vacationed in the American Southwest. I grew so attached to their companions that I regretted when they returned and I had to leave.
Caralee and Jimmy’s home was not featured in Architectural Digest, but in the local Dallas and Fort Worth newspapers. See the comment section below.
