Thirteen Degrees then Eighty Degrees

Last January we took Riley across town to the Olbrich Gardens to just enjoy some of the tropics while enduring more snow and cold. 
This year I think she actually really enjoyed it more. She was fascinated with the koi in the pond, ran around all the paths actually looking at plants and leaves.

We also got a chance to see the art show that is in the conference room. Madison Fine Arts Association was putting on the show.
A lot of beautiful fiber pieces being displayed. A cheese making class was being held in the room but since it was their lunch break we got to sneak in and see the beautiful quilts.
Apparently, if they are having some activity like a wedding or a class, on Saturday, the room is closed to the public. 

We stopped at the Mall for lunch and Chinese food. Our little "Tibetan" loves her rice. The Mall was packed. There is one thing you can count on, in Wisconsin, if it's COLD and there is a lot of SNOW people want out of their houses and comfort food.
We stopped at around 1:30 pm and the joint was still full of happy people scarfing down food.
Mother Nature is putting some finishing touches on the last snowfall she gave us. Got to clean everything up with another layer of white. 
Still not getting to me, though. I'm surrounded by color in the studio.
So, I leave you with some tropical thoughts and hope that your day is full of creative opportunities.
