At the Downtown Art Walk this past week. I like them like this, a big wall full. And it was a good feeling to watch people standing there, sucked in by it. Big color, my moments.

There’s something in the air….
Baby humming birds feeding outside our sleeping porch window. We have a sleeping porch from when the house was originally built in the 20′s and you’d come to California to take the airs for your consumption or TB. We sleep out here most months of the year. Because we net ourselves in from the mosquitos, the birds seem to think we’re sequestered away and go blithely about there nest building within a few feet from our slumbering heads.
