I spent some time at The Currier Museum of Art yesterday. It's free on Saturday mornings. I strongly urge you to take advantage of your local art museum as often as you can. I didn't go for anything in particular, but I did see this, (sorry it is out of focus), an inlay in a wooden desk. It's less than 2" wide in real life, so these light and dark areas are tiny.
Speaking of quilts, look at this,
a metal "quilt" made by a local artist, Anne Marie Kenny. I love the inconguous use of materials - the needles, the metal screen and the computer circuit boards.
It's so important to get out and look around. It keeps your brain from getting musty and stale.
