I finally woke up early enough to experience James Turrell’s Skyspace light sequence. Walking up to the space, the quietness of the morning was quite eerie as if sound had been wiped out just in this part of the world.

This year, I attended both days and did four workshops making a book sculpture, coloring book collages, watercoloring in the style of James Turrell, and […]
I love the the red room at the MFAH with all the beautiful, gold Indonesian jewelry and crowns.
