Michael was out on the street corner this weekend waving to everyone. Is he going to be our new Greeter? We will have to see about that, but he is very friendly. If you see him around town, please say Hi!
If you want to see what a Laguna Beach master glass artist can do, go to the foyer of seven-degrees in the Canyon to feast your eyes on "Feeding Frenzy". John Barber created this 22' floor to ceiling sculpture giving you the impression of being under water looking up to see the light flickering from the sky above. If this piece is too big to fit in your house, you can go to John's booth at The Sawdust Art Festival and buy something a little smaller.
Last night I went to the Preview Night for the 2013 Sawdust Art Festival. It was so fun to talk with all the creative artists and see their amazing work. The live music was happening and the food delish! Check out this fun youtube about the Sawdust: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyRdrZTeu1c
Recently recognized as a community hero, Doug Miller is an artist, musician, painter and photographer. Doug has been exhibiting at the Sawdust Festival for 42 years and hasn't missed a day of painting in 19 years. If you come to Laguna Beach, plan on running into this unique and multi-talented local!
Laguna Beach has some of the best tide pools around! Come check it out at low tide and remeber some of the rules:
1.Do not collect or remove anything, including shells, rocks, plants or animals.
2.Never pick up animals or pry them from the rocks.
If they are disturbed, it will make a difference in their struggle for survival in this harsh environment.
3.Avoid moving or disturbing rocks. There is usually some animal relying on each rock for shelter and protection.
4.Walk slowly and carefully. Do not run or jump in
the tidepools or on the rocks. Avoid injuring plants and animals.
