While in Toledo, we went to the Toledo Museum of Art especially to see the Rebecca Louise Law Installation of dried plant materials from all over the world. It was like walking through a waterfall jungle of dried leaves, pods and flowers. It was missing audio of birds singing, leaves rustling, or sounds of nature. Even better would have been some sculptures made from the same materials.
Here are a few photos.
Some of you may not know that in addition to my work with inks and resin that I also sculpt or make assemblages. I could not help but think of how much more interesting this installation would be with about 15 sculptures of my gourd ladies or similar sculptures. Here are just a few images so you can imagine it, too.
The morning before I went to see the installation, I happened to discover these dried onions, potatoes, and garlic. I was so fascinated by them that I had to take a few photos. I think a still life painting of them would be up my alley.
I'm headed to Alaska to visit my friends and family. Just wanted to share a little of my last trip.
Have a wonderful summer. I plan on being cool for a few weeks and get lots of loving from the grandkids.
