Catching up: Ruth Asawa

 Alternatively titled:  What real talent might do with wire.

Ruth Asawa, renowned sculptor, is a California artist, who is nationally recognized for her wire sculpture.  We were thrilled with the installation at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco on Saturday.  We went to see the "Girl With a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis".  Whilst there we also enjoyed "Rembrandt's Century" and "Objects of Belief from the Vatican: Art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas".  It was an incredible day!

David was keen on seeing "The Girl With a Pearl Earring" as it is his all time favorite painting...still is.

I urge you to check out Ruth Asawa's website where you will find much better photographs.  She is an amazing woman.  This was my favorite part of the day.
