all photos taken 9.13.14 @ VIA DEL COLORI
{San Luis Obispo, CA}

TRAVEL - JPE & I drove to SLO to see the chalk drawings! the artwork spanned two blocks with the featured artist drawing in the front of the SLO Mission.

I loved the chalk drawing of the colorful houses PACKED together! reminds me of being in a foreign city.

Each drawing space was outlined with duct tape & marked with the sponsor's name. Alice, the rabbit & the STRIPED Cheshire Cat appealed to Disney fans!

Mysterious, varying shades of green... one of my FAVORITE finished drawings!

TOO COOL! a balloon-maker, his "stock of balloons" and some girls patiently waiting for their balloon creature to be completed.

see you tomorrow!

"If you've got nothing to dance
about, find a reason to SING"
~ melody carstair, physical trainer

I'm SING-ING because
Gopher Glen Apple Farm is open --- crunchy, crisp, juicy, apples picked daily!

Caption a photo, share a poem
or tell a story. Just remember,
only six words in each line!

Do you ever really "see" a painting
that grabs your HEART?

I had arrived for a meeting 20 minutes early, so I sat in the lobby and began checking emails. Listening to the sounds of the receptionists answering phones, talking with clients, my eyes glazed over... when I focused my attention again, I was looking at this painting. 

I've seen this painting many times, but really had not stopped to appreciate the significance of its placement in this location.

This agency serves our lowest income residents... and many of the families have small children. I realized what a significant impact this painting could have on these families & children. The paint COLORS grab your attention! what a positive view of farmworkers collecting produce... the produce we are fortunate to purchase in our local Farmer's Markets!

I LOVE living in an area that supports the agricultural industry!
