field trip






... today I left the countryside behind me and headed for the city of Seattle.
It was a frosty cold morning.
But by the time I got to the city it was warm sunshine and oyster shell blue sky.
The field trip?
A personal date with my favorite of all artists
Alexander Calder.
He was at SAM (Seattle Art Museum).
He's funny, happy, childlike and incredibly incredibly prolific.
40 straight years of non stop energy and production.
His specialty?
Balance.
Whimsy.
Simplicity.
Ahhhhhhhhh .......

I love Calder's work, too. We have some beautiful sculptures at the LA Museum of Art.
