Visit Venice with Donna Leon

If you can't physically travel to Venice, try reading one of Donna Leon's fabulous books instead.  One of my favorite new mystery writers with all the flavor of the great city of Venice thrown in.

Marisol Sculpture in San Francisco

I had no idea when I took this photo in San Francisco in August, 2009 who created it or what it was about.  I just liked it.  I was taking the ferry into the city from Marin to help take care of my new Taylor twin grandsons and would walk through Sydney G. Walton Square on my way to Mason and Taylor.   Now, more than two years later, I discover the object of my admiration is a sculpture of Georgia O'Keefe by the Venezuelan artist Maria Sol Escobar, otherwise known as Marisol. Well worth a visit! More information from Wikipedia on the artist is here.

90+ Year Olds Who Paint

My 92 year old mother and 91 year old father still paint.  Yesterday, after a Sunday lunch at my house, my mother painted the roses from my garden which were in a vase on the table.  A lovely memory of a nice day.  The best thing about art is that it is something wonderful you can do your whole life and share and enjoy.
