Plum crazy

I'm back! It was a great wedding and we got in a whole lot of visiting and sight-seeing. Let me just say that Winnipeg has really stepped up its game in the art department! Case in point is the Oodena Celebration Circle at The Forks (click on link for a 60 second video I found on YouTube) . It is a naked-eye observatory where you look through these sculptural "horns" and see constellations. They are arranged in a circle - kind of on the edge of a "bowl". Oodena is geometrically aligned to the sunrise and sunset of the fall and spring equinox, summer and winter solstices as well as true North. On top of that, each constellation you view is carved into the stone base stone that is supporting it's "horn". When I get my pics uploaded I will share. You can also try a Google search but the pics I found don't quite do them justice.
So today I painted these shiro plums I picked up at the market. They are the tastiest I've had in YEARS! Must have been perfect conditions for plum-growing this year ; )
