Curb Appeal

The beautiful thing about living in St. Augustine is the great opportunity for creative inspiration.  Between the boutiques which offer casual Parisian Chic to the hand-sewn-funk of local artisans, art can be found in fabrics and design as well as 2D, 3D, or Bas Relief.  One can stop and get a groovy coffee, or just pack a picnic in your purse and grab a shady spot under a variety of historic landmarks.  That’s how I found the quiet courtyard at the new Flagler College Admission Office on Cordova Street.  A beautiful nook with a tile mosaic wall fountain.  And if you have not wandered to the City Marina Dock to crane your neck up at the majestic El Galeon, it’s a marvel of maritime history and part of our City’s 450th Celebration.  It’s $15 for permission to go aboard, so I just admired all the rigging from the dock.  To my own chagrin, not much was accomplished for creating art this weekend.   Too many dolly-domestic-dos with the patio garden and old house.  But, I did make it to the DOS Coffee shop at 3oo San Marco Avenue to meet with The Anonymous Society of Artists.  Look for me on Twitter and Instagram.
