Sunday Art Review: Palm Springs Art Fair

For this week's Sunday Art Review, I attended the Palm Springs Art Fair, held on various weekends on North Palm Canyon Drive in downtown. I strolled through the park, enjoying the wide variety of art under canopies and tents. Some of these works are easier to see than others...my camera isn't always the best at filtering out bad light. There were about a hundred different artists in town, I only photographed a few of course. These photos are intended to give you a sense of walking through the art fair. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


Above: These five paintings are actually a series...intended to be viewed together.




And finally...below, some metal cactus "plants" which were actually quite nice...

Well I'm off to the Port of San Diego soon, where I leave on my cruise to the Mexican Riviera. Stay tuned for daily travel blog postings for the next seven days!

Thanks for coming to visit my blog, and now it's my turn to visit yours. Nice art you've got here, I like the cact. Your Chinese fortune post down below was hilarious, I'll be back to see if you do more of those.
