|Last week I took the Larkspur Ferry with some friends to Marin to see an Altered Book Show|
at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art...an annual tradition.
|With a Peets coffee in hand and a view of the Golden Gate Bridge it was a great start to the day...|
|When I got to the show, I had to laugh, because it sure looked a lot like my studio....|
|At the show...|
|See? This is my studio.......|
|I really liked this piece and...|
|I found the description quite touching....worked on in a hospital waiting room....I have spent some time in hospital waiting rooms and the last thing I could do was make any art. I think it is very impressive and inspiring that this artist could.|
|Another piece I liked...|
|I got to attend the show with one of the artists, bottom right is the very cool work of Punkie Ebert. She wrapped some poems around those spools....|
|Just bits that caught my eye....|
|You KNOW I have lots of books that book like these....|
|And, of course, there was lunch. A wonderful group of six artists and I'd love to put a photo of us all but I know they would kill me so.....here is what I had for lunch. Blackened salmon salad....delicious.|
|And, Barcode Barb brought little handmade presents for us all -- vintage matchbooks with her charming drawings inside.|
Aren't they cool?
|The view on the ride back to San Francisco wasn't bad either....every time I take the ferry I wonder why I don't take it more often......good question..|
