Tapas postcard

Dave just returned from Barcelona where he apparently was inspired by the cuisine of Spain.
So I received this enticing postcard upon his return.
Do you read Spanish? If so, enlarge the picture and read about the tasty tapas!

Art in Colorado

Well, just a few selections of what we saw in Colorado.
First, a view of one corner in the DAM.
I have no idea of why a giant blue bear is looking into the window of the building in downtown Denver.
Nor what the baby in the museum is so upset about. But the Chilhuly room in Colorado Springs was absolutely glowing!

Just returned from a wonderful time in Denver (and other parts of Colorado). Love the new museum addition by Libeskind which is covered in titanium panels and is meant to recall Colorado's geometric rock formations.

The large exhibit of Sandy Skoglund's "Fox Games" depicts an invasion of gray foxes within a restaurant. The foxes prowl on and around red tables in an entirely red room. Every element of the installation—forks, knives, plates, dinner rolls, and even a squirrel in the mouth of one of the foxes—is painted red. Click on photo to enlarge!

Deborah Butterfield's horses are still the best! She has the pieces of wood cast in metal first, then assembles them into a horse. Wow!

Oh, yes, this little place was on our drive through the mountains.
