Welcome to the Sunday Salon.
At the Ann Arbor Art Fair today in Michigan, we were entertained by this non-aboriginal artist playing one of the didjeridoo musical instruments he makes. The wood's not decorated as a traditional Australian didjeridoo would be. But the music sounded pretty authentic.
There were blocks and blocks of booths in all art mediums - sculpture, glass art, pottery, jewelry, paintings, embroidery, photography, wooden musical instruments, etc., etc. A feast for the eyes. The day was sunny but much cooler than the past few days and so it was fairly pleasant to be outdoors though I did have to wear a straw hat.
Re books, I'm reading Sarah Jio's The Last Camellia for a book tour on Monday. Watch for a giveaway of two copies to U.S. or Canadian residents as part of the tour.
I'm also finishing up an ARC of Todd Borg's thriller, Tahoe Chase, which will be published August 1, 2013. The series is terrific and I'm enjoying this latest book.
Some great books and ARCs came in the mail from Vasilly at 1330V, including The Translator by Nina Schuyler, The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe by Mary Simses; Shorecliff by Ursula DeYoung, Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge by Peter Orner, and Loteria by Mario Alberto Zambrano. How lucky can you get winning these books! Thanks, Vasilly!
How is your weekend going?
