Yesterday I had to go to the city for an appointment, and I decided to go look at the art galleries in one of the cultural centers. I feel that it's important to take breaks to notice and appreciate beautiful and thought-provoking things, and yesterday I desperately needed a break from some of the things going on in my country and the world.
The biggest show that was currently on display was Gone West by T.L. Solien. I hadn't been familiar with Solien's work before, but this show was gorgeous-I want to go back and look at some of these again! Two of my favorites (although it's hard to pick favorites) were "Composition in Black and White" and "Water Lilies."
There were a few other smaller galleries open, and it felt wonderful to just be around art for a while. It felt like a breath of fresh air, and I know it was good for me to step away for a little bit. Because I spent the whole day in the city, I didn't get much knitting done yesterday, but I did get the rest of the yarn for my 10-stitch blanket and buttons for my Wainthropp, and hopefully today I'll get some good progress made on both of those.
