Open Your Eyes – Toni Bravo, Again

Toni Bravo just choreographed a new show, this time they will perform at the Long Center. “A Glimpse of Heaven–With Eyes Closed” will benefit Life Works. As usual, I took the pictures and designed the posters. I’m proud of these photos, they were so much fun to take, I was practivcally dancing with them, a good workout for sure!

The Austin Chronicle printed the pics for their spread about the show and put them up on their website.

Now, I need to put the camera down so I can enjoy the mesmerizing choreography!

The full session is at this link

Go see the show!!!! July 24, 25, and 26 at the Long Center. Click on the link for hours and tickets.

Fifth TSA Award! (5) – First Muga 82! (1)

El vino bueno
El vino bueno: a Prado Enea Muga 1982 a Rioja Gran Reserva

THAT is a bottle of Prado Enea Muga 1982 a Rioja Gran Reserva that we’ve had for years. We had very good reasons to open it. We just won our fifth TSA design award! It was GREAT, both the wine and the winning:-)

Thanks, Texas Society of Architects. Jurors were Philip Freelon, FAIA, president of the Freelon Group in Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Mary Margaret Jones, FASLA, president of San Francisco-based landscape architecture firm Hargreaves Associates; and Rick Joy, AIA, founding principal of Rick Joy Architects in Tucson, Ariz. (Rick Joy, oh man!)

The awarded project was, again, the Wolfe Den.

Only two Austin projects were awarded at this state level this year… what a tough, tough jury! It can really be a lottery… the rest of the awarded firms/projects were in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.

Let me tell you, we were not counting on this one. The Austin design awards were tough competition already and we saw oodles of nice work there, so we were not counting on a TSA award this year, especially with MR Joy in the jury, we know just how demanding he is! Because he can.

So we’re opening wine bottles and other things:-) We were also celebrating my upcoming exhibition in Palo Alto.

And we have great news on the horizon, I think. So stay tuned! Time to celebrate and smile after all the hard work and paltry times.

Dancing About the Mulberry Trees

in 2003 we were asked to submit ideas for an Art Forum and Community Center in Annaka, Japan… Our design was centered about the Mulberry trees we were gonna plant, hundreds of them.

See if you can spot the kids with balloons and the dog (in the sketches.)

MJ and I have gone into macrobiotics lately, we are also learning Japanese cooking, of course, MJ has always been obsessed with Japan… You should see his Japanese collection of books. It’s just delicate and beautiful.

Mas Lobo!

It’s really starting to show more like a finished house, I can’t wait to seriously photograph it!

MJ took these teasers of the Wolfe Den on W Live Oak today:

(oh, I have to remember to tell El Lobo! about Magic Erasers, in case he doesn’t know about them… those walls and doors and panels have to stay white. The magic erasers are a magic trick for white walls and doors, I swear by these things, the contractors swear by them too, will save you a lot of re-painting.)
