I need to keep this one short. It's late. Thirty images taken at last week's Bouquet to Arts exhibit at the de Young should be sufficient, and although I'd love to share my thoughts and what I learned about it all, I'm pretty sure no one actually cares. So I'm going to pass, and take the sleep instead. But here are shots of my most favorite bouquets, taken while celebrating my girlfriend's 40th birthday with a day in the city.
I loved the Aurthur Tess 1964 exhibit! (And bought the book to prove it.)
Faces, black and white, Americana.
We saw lots of air plants at this year's show. Here they were effectively used to depict fireworks.
The above still life was stunning - a pitcher of grape juice next to a stack of white bread bologna sandwiches.
This woman felt she bore a striking resemblance to the carved bust. Hmmm...I can't decide. ;)
