Our garden

Dear reader,

A friend kindly offered me to borrow his camera since our both cameras are at the repair shop. I wanted to test it and took some pics of our garden in Los Angeles with a low light and no manipulation. It was fun and impressive to see how precise the camera could be. They might be manipulated in the future and look very different. See more on  my Facebook page.


Rothko at MOCA

Dear readers,

Strange enough, I felt projected into the past last night with a show about the MOCA permanent collection that I saw with friends. It was almost the same display as several years ago and brought back nice memories about this magical room. We all had a different opinion about our favorite piece. My friends chose the light, yellow, my husband the red one and me the blue painting. Sometimes you become blasé overtime with an artist until you see his work live again and you go back to your old crush.

Outside there was a party with everyone with a cellphone taking pictures of themselves in front of a media background. That pulled me back to nowadays versus when I first saw these capturing Rothko paintings.

There are several other great artists in this show.

Poems on walls by Accion poetica

Below is an article about a poetic movement called accion poetica  who writes on walls beautiful short poems:

« No esperes que te olvide, no olvides que te espero »
"Do not hope that I will forget you, do not forget I will wait for you"
(N’espère pas que je t’oublie, n’oublie pas que je t’attends ), extrait d’une chanson du rappeur « Shé », par la plus ancienne des Acciones poeticas, l’Accion poetica de Monterrey, au Mexique.

Bernard Venet

Dear readers,

Last week, I enjoyed seeing BERNAR VENET  (French metal abstract sculptors) at ACE Gallery on Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles. There are several large scale metal sculptures that I would like to see in our Los Angeles public spaces or garden museums.

This is a glimpse of what you might there:

He had a major show in Versailles in 2011 among other international exhibitions.

I hope you can make it to this exhibition because it is rare to see his work here in L.A.
