Glass Trumpet at Carnegie Museum

As I stood in front of this piece of art I couldn’t help but think of Miles Davis and Randy Brecker. I never met Miles Davis but I did have the good fortune to be stuck on an airport Super Shuttle in New Orleans with the Brecker Brothers.By the end of the 90 minute ride we were showing each other pictures of our kids and swapping horror stories about life on the road. Great guys to be stuck in a van with. I have seen Brecker perform a few times, sorry I never got to see Miles.

Self Portrait at Carneige Museum

I seem to like self portraits were you can’t see my face like the one I use for my avatar where the camera is my face. Last year I posted a new one from Las Vegas.

Last week I took this one at Carnegie Exhibition in Pittsburgh.You can see my face a little but I like how slim it makes me look. Takes me back 40 years.

Alex Da Corte’s Neon Ghost House

One of the most amazing parts of the 57th Carnegie International Exhibition is The Neon Ghost House developed by Alex Da Cortes.The Neon house is amazing enough but inside is a small screening room. Running for over three hours there are 57 videos an homage not only to the anniversary but also to Pittsburgh’s famous 57 varieties.

Some of the videos are short and some longer and the artist performs in all of them. We saw him play Fred Rodgers and a strange version of Bugs Bunny singing Moon River.

A Special Christmas Bloom and Pittsburgh Glass Brick Window

A lot of people in Pittsburgh buy poinsettia plants for Christmas. They are beautiful although poisonous and people tend to throw them away after Christmas. Another choice is a Christmas Cactus which is called that even though it is not actually a cactus.

They grow well as house plants in our area and if treated properly will bloom year after year. This one is in our bathroom in front of typical Pittsburgh glass brick.

Global Warming Cactus

We have had this Cactus for at least ten years. It use to bloom every December like clockwork. You know when it use to snow in December. Last few years it began to bloom around Thanksgiving. This year is the first year in bloomed in October. I figure if global warming continues it will soon be a Memorial Day Cactus.

Studies In Glass Brick #3–Christmas Cactus

When we moved off the mountain last year we had to leave our Christmas Cactus behind. So we had to acquire a new one which rewarded us with a single but beautiful bloom.

Studies In Glass Brick #2–The Orchid

Some friends stayed at our house over Thanksgiving while we were away. Being good guests they left this beautiful Orchid behind. At first I thought it was fake, nothing out of nature could look like that. However it is beautiful and natural. A perfect candidate to live in front of the glass brick in our new luxurious bathroom.
