More professional decor

Prescott has more than its share of galleries and museums. Then there are the periodic weekend arts and crafts shows at the Square. However, I find that the small collections in offices and businesses around town are yet another albeit quieter venue for quality arts and crafts.

Today I visited one of my doctors who has been in his present quarters for a short time, hence there are only a few pieces. However, here is a horse that I would love to have. I'm sure that the Granddotter who is into horsies big time would also covet the painting.

Above is an attractive, smallish vase sitting on a waiting room table, hemmed in by medical brochures.

But truly outstanding is this tall vase -- about 3-1/2" to 4" tall. It stands by itself, as is proper. Furthermore, it is R.E.D. I want it.

Linkage for the day: While on the subject of arts/crafts, Tombo, who knows how to find graffiti, visited Flagstaff, where he found a splendid collection. Foolsewoode was also in Northern Arizona recently, but she focused her camera on the old Route 66 Wigwam Motel. There's a fabulous hi-res picture of a Martian crater at this UAriz site; click on the blog link to locate poster-size color PDFs from Mars.

I viewed foolsewoode's 66 tomes and became all nostalgic.

And Granny you should have both the painting and the vase. What are you waiting for? Enjoy to the fullest.

anon av -- heck -- I tried to hide my graffiti...

bro -- local bloggers do a lot of Rte 66 nostalgia -- but most of it is west of Ashfork, a section that our family never travelled. Seligman is a favorite stopping point. Also Rich has done quite a bit of Bisbee nostalg.

teresa -- that's kind of you, thinking of me that way.

I want that horsie photo, too. I just booked a corporate retreat in Bisbee AZ. Which kind of looks like the middle of freakin' nowhere. Ever been? It's an airstream trailer resort complete with tiki lounge. Woohoo!

kate -- isn't that horse great? As for Bisbee, you've lucked out. One of our local bloggers did a couple of posts with great pictures here and here.
