Tennis Balls on the Doorstep

I really liked the contrast between the reddish door and the yellow tennis balls.

Door and Tennis Balls at Newks

I was on a field assignment (a.k.a. an art quilt class) recently at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels, Texas. While other people were wielding their rackets on the tennis courts, my classmates and I were inside the conference center studying the theory of color and design. What I was doing inside seemed much harder than what they were doing outside. My idea is that if I take enough classes, eventually I’ll learn something. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I’m already signed up for three art quilt classes next year.)

 

Art at Mueller

I love outdoor art. Here are a few pieces in the Mueller neighborhood.

I love this spider. You can see the size of it when you compare it to a fellow hiker reading about the sculpture in the bottom right corner of the photo.

I passed by this artwork early in the morning. When I looked it up online, I found photos of it open. It is solar powered. I’ll have to go back and check it out in full sun.
