The Final Strech








Had a wonderful couple of days with friends here in San Francisco showing some sights familiar and some out of the way. It was a beautiful day at Union Square, a little warm for SF but hey I'm from Florida. It seems everyone is getting ready for Halloween and Vine next week.
We went to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for an Avedon photo exhibit and ran into a great vignette of modern furniture by a local Artist, (shame on me for not taking note of the name) that was in keeping with Halloween. It was a chair, table and floor lamp inspired and done like bones. Note the spine of the Chair. Brilliant!

The following day we went to the Cantor Center Museum at Stanford University, and I fell in love with an exhibit of Pacific Northwest Indian inspired art. This mask caught my eye and I'm sure you'll see a figure or ornament come from it.
The next day prepared myself for what I thought would be a long wait for UPS delivery of my shipment. I was pleasantly surprised to have them arrive by 11 AM.
To my horror some of the packages were pretty banged up. After spending the rest of the day unwrapping them again I was pleasantly surprised to find very little damage. A big sigh of relief!
Now I'm really in the home stretch, can't wait for show on Saturday. Hope those that can make it to Halloween and Vine will stop by my table and say Hi! If you can't make it, make sure to check out the site and discover a world of wonderful artist.
