well, this weekend was just superb!
For me, it started with Friday night fun with our grand-puppy Oliver who was over for some puppy-sitting and play with big boy Marley...
... finished with some good sewing and making a yummy quince preserve with my husband on Sunday night...
Albright-Knox Art Gallery and Burchfield-Penney Art Center, topped off with a great lunch at Betty's - can you spell A-H-M-A-Z-I-N-G?? ( obviously I can't spell it...he he)
Seriously now - we are so very fortunate to have such amazing places like Albright-Knox, Birchfield-Penny and so many others too - but do we use/appreciate it as much as we could (or should)? Hmmm....I know for me the answer is no, but that can change of course! How do we become so complaisant of good things that are right under our nose...? Food for thought, for sure - but lets get to some fun stuff now - PHOTOS!!! :)
Here we are:
You do agree that these steps we were standing on are THE perfect spot for a group photo, right?
Here are few more I couldn't resist:
And then there was art...
...and some classics, like Georgia (although not an expected one from her, at least for me)
Too bad that NW Ohio MQG Art Spark Challenge is over - this piece would be my choice! :) Speaking of Art Spark Challenge, HERE is what they did - cool!
So if you think Albright-Knox was an amazing inspiration and experience, wait till you see Birchfield-Penny visit! The title of the surrent exhibit is so close to my heart: ART in CRAFTS. I think I am going back soon for another take...
However, I am afraid for your visual/inspiration overload my friends, :) so I will leave that for soon-to-come next post!
In the meantime - if you can tell from photos above, what is your favorite piece? Anything that sparks the inspiration instantly? Please share!
Have a wonderful Monday,
