I remember the first item of work that came back from him included a bonus -- a picture of our fireplace with the mantle Photoshopped out.

I like these essays on "Achieving Your Personal Style" style by photographer Michael Reichman. "You cannot force personal style into being because in many ways style finds us more than we find it. What you can do is work as hard as you can at expressing your vision. You may not even know for sure when you have arrived, when you have developed a personal style. This is in part because this process is a journey and not a destination. It is also because, as artists, we do not always recognize when we have developed a style; in many instances someone else has to point this out to us."
Just as a side note, Google mid-century modern fireplaces images. Not a mantle to be found. Where do they display all their Christmas crap?
Mantle problem finally solved in the mid-century modern! Read about it and see it!
