Fridays Sky Watched By Birds; Yesterday's Walk Included Student's Art Show

Yesterday I had time for a walk at noon and took an hour to walk errands (post office, bank, art gallery and thrift store) before returning to my office. The sun was shining, it was sweater only warm out, and lots of flowers caught my eye. The first collage captures some of them, the sights and a few sketches I did this week as well.

I was very very impressed by the talent seen there. Art done in ink, charcoal, paint, collages, altered books, wire, painted chairs, ceramics, mandalas, photography, chalk, pencil...and more. There must have been hundreds of art pieces filling the walls of all the rooms of this small gallery. It was hard to pick a favorite. Here are many I liked very much.

    I don't know if you heard about the young vacaville man who lost his life while snowboarding, but that's my friend's niece's husband. They're expecting their first child in May. It 's so tragic.
