The Friday Evening Nudes



WP and I are off to Nova Scotia this afternoon! I will see you between August 2 and 4. We will be on the Fundi Shore; no phones, no TV and a computer only for the occasional stop at an internet cafe.  Can't wait to get back to Huntington Point!

Peace and love to all who visit here.
 
Stay cool!

Art News: Dennis Hopper Retrospective

 I've been a fan of Dennis Hopper's acting since I discovered his performance in Easy Rider. By the time I first saw it, the film was already a classic. But that Hopper was a visual artist was news to me when I learned of his death some months ago.

Best known for his work in film, Hopper produced an oeuvre of remarkable breadth that blurs the boundaries between art, film, and popular culture. The exhibition will trace the evolution of Hopper’s artistic output and feature more than 200 works spanning his prolific 60-year career in a range of media, including an early painting from 1955; photographs, sculpture, and assemblages from the 1960s; paintings from the 1980s and ’90s; graffiti-inspired wall constructions and large-scale billboard paintings from the 2000s; his most recent sculptures; and film installations.  Read the entire article at Art Knowledge News.

Yard Art on Thursday

On a walk with my daughter downtown, we discovered this grassy area, surrounded by a rusty chain-link fence. The yard is connected to an old garage that used to house the studio of this stone sculptor who has packed up and gone somewhere else. I guess these large pieces of yard art aren't the easiest to transport.

I once went inside to inquire about the price of a bust I liked.  Ugh. How much did you say?   ;-)





Yard Art on Thursday is hosted by Mary, who also hosts Ruby Tuesday and Window Views and Doors.

Watery Wednesday


I recently visited my daughter and daughter-in-law who live in the Santa Barbara area, where the latter is a graduate student at UCSB. On July 1, my birthday, we went to Goleta Beach, where I took these photos. I hope you enjoy them!

Check out Watery Wednesday for water-related photo submissions from all over this great planet,
which is, after all, mostly water. Let's make an extra effort to take care of our Mother Earth!

Peace, love and all groovy things,

Ruby Tuesday Goes to the Summer Solstice Parade

I was in the Santa Barbara area visiting my daughter and daughter-in-law who live in Goleta and we attended the Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration. This year the theme was" carnival" and the was lots and lots of rubies everywhere.

Enjoy and happy Ruby Tuesday, which is hosted by Mary. Every week, participants submit photos that contain a little or a lot or very mixed hues of ruby red. Check it out!
