I'm home from abroad dahlinks! A 24 hour day of travel (no sleep), a day of yawningly walking through my first day back in this timezone, started the long process of uploading my travel pics, visiting with my mom before she goes back home (driving her to the airport this morning) and now hopefully I'll be around in blogsville more often for awhile. Except, there is more travel looming - this time to the middle of a redwood forest. Not a lot of wi-fi spots available in a redwood forest, although there are clearly other rewards of spending time amoungst the cathedral-sized, aboreal giants, including more photo opportunities.

There probably won't be much studio time for awhile yet, but I hope to be able to keep up with regularly posting all the new artful images I've taken in the last few weeks.

We found this amazing piece of work in a metro station in Paris. I think it was on the way out of the shopping mall entrance to the Louvre (yes, there is a shopping mall in the Louvre - I know, I know) and I apologize for not noting the name of the artist(s).

Isn't it gorgeous! I stuck my hubby in the photo to give you an idea of the size of the piece. It could be a very complex set of quilt blocks. It could be painted squares. Or fired tiles. But nope.

It's made entirely of seed beads! Now your jaw is dropping, yes? Who has this sort of patience!? Not me, that's for sure.
