Reflections

Dolores Price is not only an amazing artist,
but also a wonderful lady.
Here we are when I attended her show
Reflections at the Conner Museum.
Her paintings were her interpretation of
her daughters photographs,
hence the name Reflections.
Cathy Porter and Dolores traveled all
around the world catching the spirit
of the places and the people.
It is an amazing show!

Here is a sample of their work...
Painting in watercolor on top...

A few more photos of the reception....






They had a nice crowd,
good food, good wine and drink.




Savor the Day!

Many stones and breathing blue light

Stones....
I've got stepping stones in my garden paths now!
Yay!
Now I just have to wait for the grass to spread
into the paths and it will look pretty good.
The seedlings are peaking through, and
around Thanksgiving I will be harvesting fresh
mesclun.  A while after that the other veggies will be ready
to harvest.  It will be nice to have fresh food
on the table for the holidays.
I love mesclun with
olive oil and sherry wine vinegar and
blue cheese and fried shallots on top.
------------------
My mention of other small stones
is about paying attention to a single moment.
My other blog has some I have written...
I am usually inspired by a photograph
that I have taken.
 A small stone is short
like a haiku
and very descriptive.

Breathing blue light
in November sun


Savor the Day!
