Winter Blessing

I love when the cymbidium orchids bloom in winter. It makes it feel warm and tropical even if it isn't so.

Bits and Pieces 6

Well, I have to say I am a little starstruck at the moment. I went to the Autry Museum today to trip around by myself for the Masters of the American West 2014 show. It just opened yesterday and I thought with the Stupor Bowl on it would be pretty quiet. Wrong. Anywhoo, I went around most of it and turned a corner and Z.S. Liang is standing in front of his section of art and then just after that Jeremy Lipking came in with his wife and newest baby. You can really tell the people who know these artists by the way they stare at them with that deer in the headlights looks - not me! I acted all casual. Besides, I live near both of these guys and I was pretty sure one day I'd be standing in back of one of them at the super market. Would I talk to them? Er, probably not, other than to ask Mr. Liang if he ever opens his house/studio for a visiting day.
And the show was super! Way more Super than that Bowl thingy.

And so here is Model 6. This may be one of my favs. She came together real well.

Cheers all. Karen
