Mini Marshmallows & Matisse September 24, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Food & Drink, Mindfulness, Poetry.

Local newspapers
Promote Island happenings
Much to see and do

Tropical colors
creatively cascade in
Village of the Arts

Lounging lizard lies
wait, proudly perched upon the
vacant, empty throne 

Siesta Key Crafts
“Just leap, and the net appears”
Faith is rewarded

A.M.I. Art Show
“It’s All Good” . . . and, if it’s not,
“It is what it is.”

St. Armand’s Circle
Metal sculptures catch the breeze
And art lover’s eyes

Hot Cocoa with Matisse by Oriana Kacicek

Mini marshmallows
melt away as another
day dissolves to night

Aah . . . that’s better!

That chair has some fascinating feet on it. 😀

Very nice pictures.

nrhatch - September 24, 2011

Thanks, Maggie. Glad you enjoyed.

I adore all these whimsical pieces. And I think I need that sign “Live, Love, Laugh, Eat, Repeat”…have they been following me around?

nrhatch - September 24, 2011

I like the part that says . . . I see hungry people.

I want that rooster! It would be perfect in our kitchen!

nrhatch - September 24, 2011

Gorgeous bird, but you’d have to set him his own place at the table . . . he’s about 6 feet tall. 😀

I’ve always wanted to work with metal (on a large scale), but something tells me I would lose a digit or two in the process!
Very impressive! 🙂

nrhatch - September 24, 2011

Photography is easier on the digits. 😉

Matisse is one of my favourite artists. I’d love to own one.

I’ll fight you for the postcard


nrhatch - September 24, 2011

You’ve got good taste! I love that painting . . . the cocoa looks so real and the postcard has a certain elegance to it.

7. Chad - September 24, 2011

Matisse is one of the greats. There were a couple of his artworks at NOMA. Glad you enjoyed your art immersion.

nrhatch - September 24, 2011

Thanks, Chad. One of our favorite things about this area is the active arts scene . . . lots of local artists and galleries.

Some fabulous stuff but the chair is my favourite.

nrhatch - September 25, 2011

It’s a terrible photo of a marvelous chair. Very Seussian.

9. ElizOF - September 26, 2011

Love, love, love the art work and all the bright colors. 🙂

nrhatch - September 26, 2011

We love going to the art shows and galleries around here . . . so much to take in.

I love whimsical. . .always have. I would have that chair in an instant, and the rooster in my yard (of the house I will own.) So much color, all of it. Very nice.

nrhatch - September 27, 2011

Isn’t that chair awesome? (Terrible photo, great chair).

That artisan in Village of the Arts does nothing BUT chairs. Each different and very whimsical.
