Beautiful people bring the sunshine. Getting together with others is on hold and will be until the pandemic passes. And when will that be? Social distancing makes one realize what we had. And will we learn to be kinder and more patient in the interim? I hope so.
I’ve once again dug into sewing and shooting scarves for Spring 2020. It’s been tedious as my hand is still not 100% after December surgery. Beautiful colors keep one going in crazy times. See more scarves here.
First, There Was Florida
I took so many photos in Florida during our March pre-COVID apocalyptic trip, I’m going to share a few over time by topic. Today the Museum and art of the stage!
It’s been a long time since I designed costuming for Shakespeare summer theater- this exhibit brought back vivid memories. Colorful sketches illustrate an artist’s comprehensive vision – myriad elements that must be taken into account together when mounting a production. Art unfolds in myriad pieces that must relate to each other and to the whole.
I’ve never seen the work of Lesley Dill but I love it. Don’t know if it’s the material (very reminiscent of brown paper bags we decorated as children, for hats and murals) or the attitude that emanates from the work.
Like most exhibits in public spaces, the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg is closed for the interim. We will return!
The return to Litchfield quickly put us back to Spring and yard work. You’d be surprised when the last frost date is – end of May? We’re cold here in northwest Connecticut. How about you?
Music is a very personal experience, specific to many things. Bill Withers’ music was unique in its heartfelt and incredibly broad appeal. Tell me you’ve never heard this music! I do have to take exception to one concept. As a gardener, I know it’s a fact that the sunshine always comes out regardless of any single person. For that I’m grateful.
