Although Earth is ART, in and of itself. 

Earth has given us beauty, symmetry, surprise and wonder since Day One.  Inspired by all forms of life on earth, we celebrate it in our own ART.  All kinds of art!  From the spoken word to the splashiest dance.  From a knitted cap to an abstract oil painting.  From the well-trained dressage horse to the happy agility dog to the tiny flower seed. 


Last week, with a couple of friends, we explored the local ArtTrails event.  About 100 artists, all located around the Santa Rosa area, opened up their studios for a weekend.  It was great to check out what some of these folks have been up to. 

I bought this small print - an artist's rendition of sandhill cranes (not a very good photo, but you get the idea)...

 ...and asked the artist if she'd be interested in working on a portrait of one of my border collies.
She is!  Hopefully, one of these days, I'll be able to share that adventure with you.

Beautiful stuff! And much better for your back than practicing serpentines. Or jogging.
