This little still life caught my eye.  Linda brought in a tulip and I liked the way the sun was shining on the cabinet.  Inspiration can be found anywhere if you just slow down and look around.

Our Weekend:

Linda is always on the hunt for places to visit.  This past weekend we were showing in Robbinsville, NJ (near Princeton)  and we had some free time on Friday.  She found...
BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.  A Mandir is a Hindu place of worship. WOW! Italian marble hand picked then shipped to India to be carved and then shipped to Robbinsville.  It was fantastic and worth a visit and I will say the volunteers were very kind and very proud of their temple.

Here is a tiny portion of the outside front. The Mandir is inside the building and its huge.

the inside walls are painted in pastels...

the entrance to the temple...  the carvings inside the temple 
(no photos allowed) were exquisite.

We watched a short video, then admired the walls, then you take off your shoes and don headphones for a walking tour inside the temple.

According to my tour-guide wife...You could combine a visit here, lunch at the Americana and the afternoon at Grounds for Sculpture (which we love) for a wonderful day.
