I had a nice idea.  Make a red and green quilt.  Make two large circles with lots of tiny pieces.  The complimentary red and green will visually help the circles to “vibrate”.  All’s well,and no, these are not Christmas Tree skirts.

This afternoon Durry and I attended an “art event” for the Redwood Arts Association.  Twenty-eight plein air artists were set up in the LARGE  Wells garden out in Bayside.  The garden was certainly past it’s summer prime, but it was still quite a setting for the painters.  There are so many trees and large bushes [...]
