First off, I want to thank the artists who emailed me. I was in heaven seeing your work and wish I could post examples of all! There are two, however that I would like to share today.
Maybe because the Spring Equinox is Tuesday and garden dreams have been filling my head lately...
These powder coated metal trellises, made in California by Terra Trellis really appeal to me. The one above is perfect for small gardens or patios, but they also offer a full range of styles and sizes. If you are in need of something to brighten or camouflage a bland garden wall, look no further. There are 7 color options to choose from! I love the clean modern style.

I also received an email from artist Bo Bartlett's people (for lack of a better word) with this video of him walking through his childhood home in Georgia, which he still occupies part-time. I find it fascinating to see where artists create, especially one of his calibar.
When I put the previous post together, I wanted to include American Artists from three different time periods, but with so many options listed on this blog - in no chronological order - I had to go with ones I knew and liked. After I received the email, I found out that Bo was a protege of Andrew Wyeth who happened to be one of the three I chose... Coincidence? Maybe, but lately that sort of thing has happened quite a bit. Have to wonder if what we like, things we gravitate towards, no matter how disparate they might appear, aren't all connected?
Since the video also shows Bo's wife - Betsy Eby - an accomplished artist in her own right, I thought you might enjoy seeing her work as well (there is a painting of hers in the background when she's speaking in the video too). I'm still kicking myself for not buying one of her paintings when she was an emerging artist in Seattle many moons ago when they were (somewhat) affordable!
