It takes some grace to ride a horse.

Very cool grave marker,it really stood out in this old cemetery.
There's nothing like laying on the dirty ground in the 104 degree heat
to get the shot you want.
Funky fire hydrant from a recent trip to Weston Mo.
I like the red on rust on chipped paint,nice textures.

My Dad working on a collage with his usual intensity. Nothing like a creative mind at work on a new project. I always admire his work ethic and range of talents. I was truly blessed to come from such a talented family.
Some of the beautiful flowers in my Mom and Dad's garden. Just another visual reminder of the wonder of summer.

Found this scene on a lunchtime walk around Union Station. Part abstract and part political. Make of it what you will.
Just some funky birdhouses hanging on a light pole in the Crossroads Art District. One of my favorite places in KC,full of art,eats and odd stuff. These creations are across from Leedy-Voulkos Art Center,another gem in this city.

Took a trip recently to Omaha to see the final days of an exhibition at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts with some work by Anne Lindberg. Her installation of thousands of colorful threads in the corner of the room is amazing. This photo in no way does it any justice,it's mesmerizing. You stand in front of it and it just vibrates with color and light. So worth the trip.
Omaha has some great outdoor sculptures, their placement is really intriguing. There were animals all over downtown protruding from buildings. Nice touch.
Cloth that has been rolled up with eucalyptus leaves inside and left to stain a beautiful pattern on them.
One of the artists,Erin M Riley, at the Bemis Center involved in the Open Studios. She made some really amazing photo-realistic weavings. Not your usual themes on woven materials.

I just love the Science Fair,so much imagination and creativity. It gives you hope for this crazy world.
Whorls,people,whorls! Get your mind out of the gutter,for crying out loud! I also like the part about "Comparing Fingerprints and Toe Prints". This should help dramatically with all those foot-related crimes that have been happening lately.
When I first saw this exhibit,I thought the Science Fair was tackling some heavy social issues. Then I read the fine print.
I'm so proud of my niece and her partner's winning exhibit. They worked really hard on this project and it shows. There's nothing like bringing home the gold ribbon to make the family proud.

Well,if this years St Joseph's table is any indication of the culinary trends for 2012,it looks like it's going to be the year of tasteful colors and over-sized muffins. I'll get the Gaviscon ready.
Okay,eggs made of sugar and icing. Kind of seems like an Easter sort of thing but what do I know? I'm still trying to figure out the gumdrop dress thing.
You know,my birthday is coming up. You want to know what kind of present to get me? Yeah....present cake.
When people ask me what's my favorite type of woman,I tell them a woman wearing dress made of gumdrops. It's like candy and fashion all mixed together in one outfit. Hey,Tim Gunn,pay attention,we need more gumdrop dresses out there.
Well,when you spend all your time on baking desserts,you tend to forget about advertising and marketing. Just tape a piece of cardboard to the wall and be done with it. Remember: the more time you spend making a nice sign then the less time you have to eat desserts.
Well,it must be March in Columbus Park,and that means the The Feast of St Joseph complete with a wide assortment of baked goods.Oh look,my favorite kind of cake...book cake. The pages are delicious.
