Last weekend Gbf and I popped into the Penrith Regional Gallery.
It's a favourite place because the cafe there has really delicious breakfasts in a setting overlooking the garden and of course seeing fabulous art is always a bonus. We didn't know what was showing in the gallery on this visit, so we were pleased to find the main exhibition was of beautiful Kare Sansui, or "dry landscape" in Japanese.
These waterless pebble gardens filled the rooms with a majestic calm .
As I walked around and admired the peaceful patterns they somehow felt familiar...
and then I thought of the quilt I've been working on recently.
Another room hosted a forest of Bonsai trees on pedestals.
WooHoo , Dancing birds!
Our trip to the art gallery wasn't all neutral colours. I spied this wonderful banana flower as I walked through the garden. Such a perfect flower for an art gallery garden!
Okay, It's time to make binding for the Dollop of Cream quilt. I'm going to a quilting retreat this weekend and finishing off this quilt is on my list of things to get done.
