I invite you to join the Art of Remembering at Rebecca's Recuerda Mi Corazon every Sunday from now until Day of the Dead on Nov 2nd...this time of year, when the veil begins to thin our thoughts are united in remembering our loved ones that have passed on.
my piece...Remembrance, will be one of three pieces in the Dia de los Muertos exhibit at the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center and was an important way for me to work through the feelings of my dad's death this past spring.
the Monarchs...this beautiful container of the souls of those departed... circle...and in turn embrace us in the golden light of fluttering wings and the vast golden hues of the marigold.
I will enJOY sharing more of this series each Sunday for the Art of Remembrance and hope that those in the area come to the museum to see the work in person.
Well 56/56 proved to be a golden birthday indeed...thanks to my sweet family that indulged me for 2 solid days...traveling light with only my cell phone camera, come with me on my little birthday celebration excursion...we started with a fabulous dinner AND banana flambe like dessert at Tag
the three of us then went off to a wonderful dance/music performance at the Ellie Caulkin Opera House
Carry on by Paper Bird and the Colorado Nouveau dance company...go on, treat yourselft to 3:00 minutes by these talented performers...I'll wait
The Curtis downtown is a wonderful place to stay...but in less than a month my kiddo will be moved into her condo and we'll be staying at the very comfortable Casa Tess
we won't wear out our welcome...I promise
The Denver Art Museum opened a retrospect of the work of El Anatsui and as we wandered through his amazing works from his chain saw sculpted gatherings of figures to paintings, prints and finally his exquisite Kente cloth like hangings constructed of bottle caps. We were surprised and delighted to see the artist himself had come for this opening...even surprising some of the staff.
The exhibit is there through Dec 30th...catch it if you can
Next stop the Denver Botanic Gardens to see the bamboo sculptures of two installation artists working in bamboo: Tetsunori Kawana and Stephen Talasnik. Mr R had his camera and took many brilliant shots...I'll share those some cold winter day when I need to remember the late summer heat.
my favorites were the pieces floating among the lily pads...drifting with the breeze.
2016 is a potent year for me...sweet '16, it is my 60th year and since I made the decision to keep this blog going for at least another year I am going to use this as a daily gratitude practice. If you choose to visit and perhaps leave a comment I am grateful for that too.
