My friend Claire drove me around Bainbridge Island in early October. She let me out of the car to take pictures of the stacked rocks near Poulsbo. I was intrigued by the positioning of the rocks to look like a Rock Man. It wasn't until I got home and looked at the photo that I realized the Rock Man was doing the 'tree pose" or Vriksasana among the trees!
We visited the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art and viewed a lifetime showing of Barbara Earl Thomas titled Heaven on Fire that was very provoking. She showcased words spoken to her from her past and the impact of those words on her art in many different mediums. One I found especially moving was a 'room' created by draping intricately cut LARGE wall-size sheets of paper.
While at the BIMA We also experienced an exhibition of art 'books.' The title 'book' is loosely used. There were many different interpretations by many different artist in different mediums. One of Claire's friends, Carolyn Terry, had a book on display.
The evening before, I was lucky to attend a house concert hosted by Hank and Claire, musicians in their own right, who opened with a couple of songs. Then three delightful ladies, Laura Silverstein, Laura Smith and Laurie Riley, who usually sing and play independently, came together for a sumptuous musical feast of lute, harp, dulcimer, harp and banjo songs.
My cup runneth over........
