  • Grandpa's Garage Studio 7 suggests to get over here and get happy. Colors are what allow us to enjoy our gift of vision. Light hits an object and the light is reflected back are the colors we experience, all the other colors are absorbed into the object (water). Maybe light and water are one in the same only tiny and yang. See what we can see to be true by mixing colors and having fun making art.
  • I really enjoy this small museum. Enough there to not overwhelm you in one visit, but also not too little that you would be bored. Many artists and eras represented. I plan on making some future sketching trips since we will be living close by.
