This rusting metal of art belongs to a WWII ammo depot in the hills overlooking San Francisco. Ah, the stories that it holds.
During this time of year a low sun strikes the windows pretty hard, producing a glare that requires shade curtains to protect the eyes. Once the windows are covered, we have shadow art from glass koi hanging on the other side.
Anne created this mosaic panel that’s been outside for nearly 20 years.Yesterday, the morning shadow of a crepe myrtle graced her artwork while I clicked the shutter. Double art, although her effort took more time and skill than mine.

They’ll wake up one dayContinue reading “The Face of Ignorance”
The recent 25th Annual Carmel Art Festival was held outside in a park and at an adjoining street. A number of items were sculptures that I had viewed in the past through a gallery window. I didn’t go in. But in the park the overcast day gave this ballet dancer shadows and added intensity missingContinue reading “Art Displayed Outside”
