Red or White?

That was my emailed question to the Livermore Art Association (LAA) Vice-President, Angela, an artist who accomplished wonderful things for the Arts in Livermore, in her four years as LAA President. And she continues to do so…!

I got no reply! :-) (I remembered why….!)

The question sounded a bit like the common question asked by servers in restaurants in Santa Fe, NM, about salsa, “Red or Green?” To which the proper response is, “Which is hotter?” :-)

But I was not asking about wine (THIS time! :-) )…. I was responding to her message that one of the two photographs of water lilies in the original fountain of Mission Santa Barbara that I had entered in the U.S Bank Show in Downtown Livermore, CA had won the “Best of Show” award!

But which one…? The red or the white…?

Finally, this afternoon, I could take the suspense no longer, and I toured the show. The fine art print in question was “Water Lilies, White, Mission Santa Barbara.” Its companion piece (they really belong together, with the red hanging to the viewer’s left of the white), “Water Lilies, Red, Mission Santa Barbara” is hung right below it. See which one you like better.

Of course, I am very happy! In touring the show, I was delighted by the wonderful collection of art submitted by members of the LAA – from paintings, to photography, to mixed media, to 3D.

The show will run through July 6, during normal bank hours. Coincidentally, one of the LAA Circuit photography groups, of which I am a member, has photographs (I have four) hung on the walls of the bank, as well.

Come see the wonderful collection of art. Be sure to thank the folks at the bank for supporting the Arts in Livermore!
