A post card from our visit to an art gallery in Davis, CA yesterday. This artist had a few of her paintings done on huge sheets of linen cloth that showed shadows and reflections beautifully! (See story of our day below) Here we are back home again testing out cameras. DH and I each have a camera that has been malfunctioning and are taking photos of each other. He got my Cannon to work (for now/with fingers crossed). In front of me on the back of the chair you can see the roll of gold mesh fabric I got at the garage sale in the morning. Please excuse the rest of the mess in that room, as it is where I create! (messes and art!) ;-)
Yesterday DH and I had a great day close to home. We first did thrift stores & garage sales here (and I found a huge amount of wonderful gold open weave fabric $1 seen above); then we drove 20 minutes out of town to Davis, a University town, and went to several art galleries. My camera was on the fritz so I have few photos to share, but we saw wonderful African art including masks and most interesting fabrics and designs, local artists paintings of Sacto area and Mendocino areas, art quilts, ceramics, and more...all terrific works of art! I realized I have a new eye for art now since being exposed to so much good art through YOUR blogs! Lunch out was a very favorite of ours grilled salmon/bacon/tomato/lettuce/fresh basil sandwich on delicious sour dough bread with thick crust. We walked a lot, went into some shops, antiques (where I tried on but did not buy silver filigree earrings), art supply store where I did buy a new spiral bound sketch book and crayons for drawing on fabric, and saw wonderful papers that would make awesome collages.
It was a fun day and felt like a date with my best guy!
Today it is raining and looks like a good day to stay indoors and work on my Living Green art quilt!
Wishing you a peaceful Sunday where you live.
