More from Pasadena
Geoff and Dave's friends David Bell and Iris Hu were kind enough to share their lovely home with me during my birthday visit to Pasadena. Clearly, it's the home of artists as evidenced by paintings, collages, collections of found objects and plants, baskets, and weaving.
Iris is an artist and maker with a current interest in Native American crafts, both weaving and basket making. David is a writer and gallerist. Dave and I made a quick visit to his gallery, Visitor Welcome Center, on Saturday evening to see an opening of works by John Burltle and Nikki Darling. Some of John Burltle's creations are below, made entirely using rubber stamps.
Jim Tuck's garden in January!
On our way to the airport for my flight back to Phoenix, we had breakfast at Foxy's in Glendale.
It's a mash up of ski lodge, cocktail lounge, diner, and fancy lighting shop. The lighting shop is actually across the parking lot. Breakfast was great, but then any restaurant where you can make your own toast at your table automatically gets my vote. It's worth the stop, you're sure to find something to like about it. And the Christmas decorations were on point too.
