Only a true red-head should wear that shade of green.
Wednesday morning, we got out of the house early and drove 4 hours down to Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mt. Vernon, IL to see Carol Carter's large watercolors of swimmers. She has 4 in the show (all paintings and works are from St. Louis artists and there is some outstanding stuff there). I admit, I am prejudiced towards Carol's watercolors and stood and looked at them for quite a while, getting a wonderful view of the way she handles those watercolors, blending, allowing for blossoms, mixing dulled colors with pure pigments on the paper. Seeing how she uses the blossoms to model the shoulders, arms, hips of the figures = beautiful!!
After a night in Terre Haute, IN, we left the hotel this morning for Center Point, IN and the Exotic Feline Rescue Center to see big cats and take lots of photos. Will have some to share when we catch our breath from the long hours on the road. Two busy days and we're home before dinner time = now that's my kind of road trip!
