It's a different experience when you go there looking for patterns. You look at everything very close up. Of course, I usually do that because my eyesight is getting bad. In fact, one of the guards was watching me in the Piccaso exhibit. I don't think she liked how close I had to get to the pieces just to see them in focus.
Below are some of the patterns I saw today.
|I've always looked at this lion's head but never looked at the patterns that make up the mane, ears, and whiskers|
|I love this....if only they would let me bring in some molding compound :)|
|What you are looking at is the pattern projected on the wall by the lace sheet hanging in front of it.|
|Pattern on a Medieval door|
|Even the plants in the atrium have great pattern|
I also had lunch at the museum. They have both a cafeteria style cafe and a restaurant...with a bar!! So I sat at the bar and had a fantastic shrimp and noodle salad with a spicy peanut sauce...yum. You've got to love a museum with a bar in it!!
I finished off the afternoon by stopping by the Screw Factory to see Eva Sherman's new studio space. Oh...I am so jealous. It's huge and wonderful. I wish I had that type of space. Spent some time visiting witih Deb H. and Katie. On the way out I noticed she had some fantastic strands roman glass she brought back from Tucson. Of course I picked up a few. I'm going to have to admire them for a while before I make anything with them.
Eva's bracelet and cuff were on the cover of the most recent issue of Art Jewelry. She's very talented!!
