Happy New Year!!

We wish for you Grand Adventures and Rekindled Friendships as well as all that need not be said (LOVE, HEALTH, HAPPINESS)!  Our last adventure —  Mexico City, December 2012 — delivered art and soul and passion and this incredible Sunday Brunch Fountain!

Sunday Brunch Fountain, Mexico City, 2012

All of the warnings of pollution and crime proved false.  The depth of culture in this city is overwhelming, stimulating and inspiring.  The architecture is awesome, from pyramids to basilicas to contemporary structures.   The food and music were outstanding.  The subway system is enviable and ridiculously affordable.  If you’re thinking about a trip to Mexico City, think about it no longer, just go!

 

DEANNA’S AMULET

We said we’d get back to you regarding an installation at Peacehealth Peace Island Medical Center, the new hospital and cancer treatment facility that opened in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, in November.  We successfully installed “Deanna’s Amulet” in the lobby of the Cancer Care Center and send our appreciation to the art committee for commissioning this tapestry fragment for inclusion in the unique and poetic body of work installed in the facility.
