As it’s been many months and I have a new (temporary) home and new (permanent?) camera, here are a few images from my weekend. I am taking in as much of Austin and the surrounding areas before I mosey back to my hometown in Florida. I still have more images to share from my time abroad but this probably officially ends all of my photos of Thai temples for the time being. (I’m kind of bummed to think of that.)
Instead, here’s a few of my other favorite things. The weekend found me on a rainy day at the Wimberley Market which boosts 100s of booths and then on the Travis Heights Art Trail which gave entry to 19 artists homes and studios on a gorgeous day.
Wimberley’s grey day –
Skulls and antlers for sale.
Flamingos in Texas!
One of the unique shops at the market where I found wooden music spools!
Incredible puppet-maker, Zac Thomas, who spoke passionately about his art. I fell in love with this Angel and couldn’t leave without it. Made of old chairs, it is so heavy and just absolutely wonderful.
Wimberley cypress, one of the limited survivors after their terrible flooding in June.
Cute shop in Wimberley.
Travis Heights Art Trail
Paintings by Robin Hegemier full of vibrant colors and trees!
Art by John A. Mercado, wonderful mixed media art with book paper, collage, and other found papers.
Activity area for children where they could try their hand at creating art like Jackson Pollock.
Sculpture by Bobby Pearl
Narrative sculpture by Bobby Pearl, entitled Refugee.
Perfect day for a walk (if not a bit toasty).
Heidi Stanfield’s beautiful mixed media with reclaimed wood and precious door.
Historic home in Austin, now the Fairview Bed and Breakfast.
Beautiful tree to complete the day.
