Orchids

A good movie is the movie, Adaptation.  Now….it wouldn’t be something you would watch as a way of being entertained, that’s for certain!  But if you like movies that are thought-provoking and take you out of yourself and then back into your head, then this is a movie for you.  Did you see Waking Life?  This would be another one of those.  There are lessons/ideas/concepts to be thought about.  I suppose you would have to be in the right mood…and probably alone…something many people have a difficult time achieving in today’s world.
  
There are books that are just like that….some that appear on my “Darned Good Books List”.  Try pressing click on some of the titles as you will be led through an adventure of things that I wonder and marvel about.

Years ago I taught an art student…Tim Belliveau.  I also taught his sister some years prior to that and her name is Elizabeth.  She is busy making art in Canada…creating children’s books, animated films and amazing mixed media sculpture.  Tim blows glass.  I have attached one of his orchid sculptures to this blog somewhere.  See if you can find it.  As well, I have made his website available as he has opened an artist’s collective….and is hosting an open house at their studio this weekend.  A portion of his work has been influenced by the orchid and I am absolutely in love with these pieces!
