I wanted to share a wonderful, fun day I had with my bestfriend, Adrien. January was my month to plan our monthly mystery trip. I picked the Exploratorium. But along the way we found this hidden treasure. A rest spot where you could look out over the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay and see this!
Isn't that stunning! I could have stayed up there all day. It was just how I like it with the sun peeking through the clouds and lots and lots of clouds. Damp and the smell of the ocean blowing in. Everything was fresh smelling and looked like a fine painted canvas.
Our final stop was here!
Truly a fun and bizarre place. There were times I felt we were children discovering things. And laughing sometimes with glee. Adrien and I had smiles on our faces all day. Taking in the sights and touching everything (if you are a germ-a-phobic...really not the place for you...lol). Getting into everything. I learned alot and so did Adrien. We both agree the best exhibit was the area where they were demostrating sound. It was the best, and the one her and I really got into.
I found art work everywhere in this building. The square footage in this place is incrediable. I will be showing you pieces that I had stop and look at again to take it in. Here is a piece...What do you see? An old lady? or perhaps a young woman? or both?
In this one, do you see Goblets? or do you see people's profiles? or both?
I found this piece of artwork over head. It was simply just paper. But showing how much vloume is used everyday, showing how much waste, office buildings have daily!
This one is titled 'The masks worn'. Showing what masks people wear daily! Most people walked past these and didn't stop to take in the beauty of these pieces. The ones I did see stop and take it in, were most notably people who knew art when they saw it. LOL!
It was a wonderful day, I thought. It was wet out and a perfect day for a muesum trip! I loved the easiness of the day and loved that my face hurt (from smiling) after the day was done. A sign of a good day.
Talking about art, I have received some of my swaps for the Jan.Dotee Doll and Winter Dotee Doll. As some of you know, I love these little dolls. They are addicting. I love owning these little pieces of art. I am working on putting them on a cork board in my craft room, so I may enjoy their smiling faces daily. The time and enery that goes into these are incrediable. This one is all the way from Italy. The January Dotee Dolls were to reflect creativty. Whatever form that is for the person. This person does stamping, so she stamped her fabric and put a lovely quote on the front. It reads "Believe in your dreams..." I think she is perfect!
Here is my interperation of the creativity theme.
On my doll I used lots of beads. I love using beads and buttons. And I wrote "ART" on her front, why? because I love Art! I made 2 almost the same, just little changes on each. Both are on the way to their new homes.
And this one was for the Winter Dotee Doll swap. Her creator hand painted her face and sewed on her a lovely winged charm. I call her IcedWing. I really love how nothing takes away from her face and eyes. Those eyes seem to have a story. I am all into eyes. I love her! She came all from Ontario, Canada. So there you are, my little pieces of hanging art. I love art and how it makes me feel. Enjoy!
With much love,
