There’s nothing like an art show, a gala event – especially when your favorite youngest daughter has her first wall in the show…
a beautiful artist…
a proud father by a tapestry. Art is the voice of the artist made real.
Soon… the wonderful celebration brunch in downtown Philly.

Form and function as art
I don’t know if I would commute on this bike, or frame it…

More birds from my favorite youngest daughter. Birds make me happy.
Goldfinch, Woodpecker, Cardinal
The gift of beauty
Shared between two hearts as one
Goldfinches bring good luck

If you ride in the meadows of the Big Horn mountains, you might discern small non-descript birds alone or clustered in groups of five or ten along the fences. Nothing much to see until startled they take flight and sunlight sparkles off their wings in the brightest blue.

My favorite youngest daughter captured this in her series of birds. She’ll have a series of eight birds out soon. How fleeting and precious are the moments.

I like sculpture, sculpture that can be touched, as if touching it helps to know it’s meaning. One of my favorite pieces resides in Cleveland, The Free Stamp. Perhaps I like it because so many despise it, but the message intrigues me.
In Philly ( Philadelphia ) I came across this sculpture. It’s an actual plane, first a submarine bomber, then a firefighting plane and now…
Weapons of war have a beauty in them, a savage efficiency. Here on the street it’s peaceful,just right.
an odd juxtaposition, but it works
Maybe there is something to swords into plowshares after all.
