graciously sent me some photographs of her trip to Venice -- including this incredible door. THANK YOU JONA! If you haven't seen her blog -- check it out -- terrific work!
If all goes well, I will be in Tuscany and Venice next year on a two week art trip (fingers, toes, eyes and ears crossed!!! LOL), and so I keep trying to get in a bit of architecture and water practice .. and Jona's photographs have inspired me to keep trying these topics!
The fair yesterday was terrific! The day started out mighty cold (for me!) and wound up being in the 60s -- fabulous weather to be among crowds, fair-food, and super displays of our state's agricultural heritage. The horticultural gardens (small plots designed and landscaped by individuals, schools, professionals, were the epitome of inspiration - and we've been invited to participate next year. We'll defnitely consider it! I loved seeing the competitions too -- everything from food and animals to humongeous pumpkins and sweet potatoes and apples to arts and crafts. Old timey farm implements and equipment, displays of bees and hives, flowers, and so much more. A harvest celebration to be sure!
