New Orleans Insectarium.

И вот мне приснилось, что сердце мое не болит,
Оно — колокольчик фарфоровый в желтом Китае
На пагоде пестрой… висит и приветно звенит,
В эмалевом небе дразня журавлиные стаи.

А тихая девушка в платье из красных шелков,
Где золотом вышиты осы, цветы и драконы,
С поджатыми ножками смотрит без мыслей и снов,
Внимательно слушая легкие, легкие звоны.

My very favorite poem by Nikolay Gumilyov came across my mind in NO Insectarium. I did not find any traslation in English (I'm sorry, my English readers) - it is about sorrowing heart transformed into a porcelain bell in China where a girl in embroidered silks listens to it's soft sound.

Three Rivers Art Festival.

This weekend, November, 14-15,  I'll be participating in Three Rivers Art Festival , in Covington, Louisiana. ( I love Louisiana!)
This event is a 2 day event, free to the public, that stretches white tents down Columbia Street in historic downtown Covington. It is an event for people of all ages as there are things to do and look at for all age groups and all economic levels. Over 170 artists from over 25 states bring their fabulous work to Covington for this event.
Last weekend I did Great Gulfcoast Art Festival in Pensacola - it was perfect weather and very nice show. Thank you to all my customers!
