Flower pods pounded from metal, shadows cast on a walkway, tree trunks and nests made of glass, watercolors larger than life, exuberant colorful oil paintings.

I encourage everyone to visit this exquisite show at the Harrington Gallery in Pleasanton, CA, thoughtfully curated by Julie Finegan of the Firehouse Arts Center. The exhibit showcases the work of seven artists, who use a range of materials to express their experiences of nature. Beautifully installed, the energy of these works flows from room to room, offering an oasis of harmony in a turbulent world.

What I Saw Today: November 3, 2012

veggie palette

Inspiration for color palette is right there on the chopping board: green summer squash, yellow and white carrots from my garden; blue/purple potatoes and white parsnips from the market. The soup was tasty, too!
