Mid week breaks are the best! But I had a holiday on Monday, so I guess that means I got to work through it! smile

I started a new blog, which i linked above! I hope you will check it out. I will be blogging from there now!
Ginnie Hart: I did find out that you Canadians also celebrate Labor Day on the same day as we Americans. I've tried twice to open your new link but without success. I'll keep trying....but in the meantime, yay for NEW.
Joli travail, l'oiseau est très beau.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martine. This really was to stare at.

This was an incredible exhibition, very creative and sometimes we really had to look good and we saw new things.
Love the detail.
I found the grand opening in the Grote Kerk in a Youtube.

Ginnie Hart: OMG! I can't believe you found that link to the opening of this exhibition, Astrid! I wonder why we didn't know about it??? Or maybe only certain people were invited? You would never know there are so many ways to be creative with flowers!
Goodness that is beautiful, Ginnie! I don't know how big it is, or what percentage you've photographed here... but this crop is a perfect composition!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I would guess this is about a 15 x 9 in. section of a framed print similar to this one by the same artist: http://www.galeries.nl/kunstwerkz.asp?idnr=128897&artistnr=1220&sessionti=878532390

The Humming Bird is beautifully worked, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I found it to be quite exquisite, Lisl!

This is a very accomplished thing Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: The entire exhibit was quite impressive, Chris. I had no idea this kind of mixed media could be done!
A fine example of spot colour in the paint sense Ginnie. Thank you for a great time in Gorinchem.
Ginnie Hart: Thank YOU, Chad, for such a great two days with you and Norma. Travel mercies as you continue on to Philine today.

What a beautiful exhibition - I especially love the bird.
Ginnie Hart: This is the kind of exhibition I can picture you loving, Philine. Thank you.
always a good idea, Ginnie. and a nice shot too. at first glance though, i had a thought that the hummingbird was pretty much draining the colour out of the scene!
Ginnie Hart: Great observation, Ayush. I think you may have an inside track into the artist's intent?!
Wow, this is so nice Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: The entire exhibition was a pleasant surprise, Richard. Thanks.

Ah now that is beautiful. Very cleverly done by the artist, I like the relief of the flowers, too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. It really was quite impressive!
reminds me of my mom's handiwork! which isn't always a good thing haha but in this case it is
Ginnie Hart: I used to embroider like this in my day, Elaine, but never "mixed" it with another medium like this. It was quite incredible to see.
A clever piece of craft work Ginnie. The humming bird is particularly delightful
Ginnie Hart: The entire exhibit delighted us to no end, Bill. It's amazing what can be done with flowers!
This is a lovely piece of craft work, I must make sure to show it to Maureen, she does lots of crafting, indeed she is at her weekly meeting as i sit here typing this.
Ginnie Hart: I was quite stunned by the creativity I saw at this exhibit, Brian. I know Maureen would love it.
It certainly is mixed media and I love it.
Ginnie Hart: It was something else, Mary. Thanks.

Our roses didn't work out, Ginnie, so I have replaced them with Desert Roses.
Ginnie Hart: A rose by any other name, Ray??! As long as we notice them, that's all that matters, I think!

The 3D aspects comes through quite well in this picture. Pruned my roses last week, but soon the will be there.
Ginnie Hart: I guess we all can relate to roses in one way or another, Louis.
How nice this is, Ginnie, I knew Elizabeth would like it, she feeds Honey birds on her balcony.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Frank. This was definitely one of my favorites at the exhibit.

It must have autocorrected to my old site. smile

Exceptional art!
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Bonnie! I was in awe....
Only one? I want a couple more so I can use "a charm of hummingbirds". wink

We don't have hummingbirds in Malaysia. But our bee-eaters are equally colourful.
Ginnie Hart: One was enough to capture the imagination, LC, don't you think?? HA! Actually, that one was so ornate I had to finally just close my mouth.
OH my gosh Ginnie...this is so beautiful!!!
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it amazing what can be done with art, Robin! I know.
