On Wednesday of this week, my brother-in-law, Mac, treated me to breakfast out and then a trip to the Taft Museum of Art to see the Tiffany glass exhibit (and the willow branch installation by sculptor, Patrick Dougherty - called Twisted).
It was a fun day and I had already painted this for Mac and my sister to commemorate the day. They both loved it and that made me happy. It is a copy (kind of) of one of the Tiffany windows called River of Life.
If you are in the Cincinnati area and get a chance, go by and see it SOON because it will be gone May 27th - and the willow tree saplings (6 tons of material which took 150 volunteers to help produce into the swirling, hobbit home-like shapes) is amazing!!! It is on the front lawn of the museum and you feel like you've stepped into a "Willow Wonderland" (Mac's words for it) as you walk through and around, touching the entwining saplings and marvelling at what imagination and teamwork can do. Right now, the peonies are in full gorgeous bloom and set off the willow dwellings perfectly. Check it the information here.
I also did this little doodle in my sketchbook (thin paper for dry media only) - I am trying to follow through and work in my sketchbook even if it's doodles and lines and scribbles for now. I put the sticker on there after our visit to commemorate the day.
Of course, we are getting rain but maybe you can get there in between showers today or tomorrow? Tomorrow is a free day, I think?
