Tuesday Travelogue October 24th

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 140th week!

Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:


 to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

  and hopefully much more!


Art inspired me this week and First Friday Art Walk in Vancouver WA by Alexander-Slocum was my kick-off for this week's theme!

ALOT of people love Dale Chihuly's sculptures and many in Active Rain have written about his works showcased in their area or somewhere they've visited. I could have found several, but like highlighting some bloggers who don't get a lot of eyes on them. So, this is Dianne Good's post about Chihuly at the NY Botanical Gardens. 


Wine and art go naturally together, and this is an annual event (we've missed it, but it's still fun to view and think about for next year). Capitola Art&Wine Festival brought to you by Pete Cullen. 



Abstract Art by one of our own ActiveRainers! Charita Cadenhead takes a stab at it with her 8-year old grandson! How much fun is that?? (I want one!!)

Please don't forget to comment on these blog posts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels.

Thanks for the feature Gayle.  When I first clicked on this post, the first thing that caught my eye was the acrylic pour painting on the right in your featured photo.  It reminded me of the first acrylic pour painting that I achieved with the desired cells in it.  Hope you don't mind my posting it here so you can see what I'm talking about. Although I didn't take a great photo of it, it really did turn out well.  Thanks again Gayle.

Hi Gayle - You picked a great topic this week and some excellent posts. I especially remember the Chihuly one - I've always liked his work.

Those were colorful travels today!  I can't remember the last time I was at a museum, but I did recently see some beautiful art at a fair exhibit, but photography was prohibited.

What a lovely theme you picked for this week.  During the winter Olympics in Utah, they had a Chihouly exibit of sea anemones, and one had to lay down on the floor to see it best.  A

Charita Cadenhead NO idea how you do this, but damn, girl, you are great at it!! I happen to LOVE abstracts. So glad that you appreciate being featured AND that you shared more of your amazing talents with us. 

Aren't these especially fun, Dick Greenberg? Being the creatives that we are, we really can appreciate all forms of art. 

Sharon Lee I looked for your post on this and couldn't find it...wanted to spotlight you, but so glad that you popped by to show your appreciation none-the-less.

Tammy Lankford, the fall season with all its splash of vibrancy inspired me! That and happening upon Alexander- Slocum's post.

Oh, Ron and Alexandra Seigel I would have loved lying on the floor to take it all in! He is so absolutely boundless in his creative juices! What a fun guy to talk with, I'll bet. He seems to gather so much of his influence from nature. Gotta love that.

Not talent, just experimenting with paint.  I'll consider it talent when I actually know what I'm doing (lol).  At any rate, thanks again and have a great day.

Thanks Beth.  I appreciate it.
