Weekend Deliveries

Saturday I took an early morning drive through the hill country to spend the day at Artisans of Rocky Hill, in Fredricksburg, Texas. I love these drives; the quite time to myself, the small towns, the flora and fauna. On this morning the fog provided a vial over peach trees still bare of leaves but full of pink blossoms. It was storybook like to see miniature ponies pawing the choral fence, a cottontail rabbit trying to cross the road and newly shaved sheep in the pasture.  As I sipped my coffee I thought a bit of the twenty plus pieces in the box next to all made in shades of browns, vanilla and bronze. Not exactly spring colors I worried but on display in the gallery next to wood turnings and pottery they looked great.

37x21" mosaic

While at Artisans I made the final payment and picked up a wonderful mosaic called "Fiesta Bouquet" by Patricia Karr & Pamela Studstill. The piece measures 37 x 21" and is made of glass and handmade ceramic components. I can  imagine the hours spent hunched over this piece to add all the components and put in the glass arches in the background. These ladies did a terrific job in executing there idea. Now that I have it safely home, I just need to find that perfect place in my home for it to live.

Sunday, I spent the afternoon in the gallery at Roadhouse Arts, in Bulverde Texas, visiting with good friends and dropping off a few pieces for the shop. It is so good to see what the artists behind Roadhouse are doing with this space. They are collecting a small group of really talented local artists in their gallery in addition to their own work produced on property in their personal studio spaces.
