Artifice Or Poesis

My old friend, Saskia, is currently exhibiting some of her work at Soren Christensen on Julia Street in the Warehouse District. I urge everyone to check it out if possible sometime between now and the end of September. All of the pieces are wonderful. Saskia is so good at what she does thanks, in large part, to natural ability but also to years of training and incredible discipline. The result is very impressive. There are so many pieces in the exhibit that I love - Exhaustion and Color of Summer II, just to name a few. The most magnificent piece, in my opinion, is an 86 x 96 painting of a horse in motion, Fight of Flight. The title is probably self-explanatory for those of you living in New Orleans. You have three weeks to look at it because once the show closes some lucky guy will have it all to himself. It would be a shame for you to miss the opportunity to look at something so incredible, even if just for a minute or two.

You can check out the work at if you are unable to make it to the gallery.

And because some of you might be sad if I don't include a picture, here's La Luz in her robe from Kelsea, ready for her bath:
