Small Business Saturday at Second Star to the Right

There are many wonderful facets of being an author, but one of the best is reading my book to an audience of children. I love school visits, library events, and bookstores.

What can make it even better?

Sharing the Storytime spotlight with another author!

I was lucky enough to team up with Carmela LaVigna Coyle for a space themed morning at the magical bookstore, Second Star to the Right.

Carmela reads CAN PRINCESSES BECOME ASTRONAUTS.

If you’re looking for a book to inspire creativity and curiosity in children, I humbly suggest ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON. It can be purchased through my website, Eifrig Publishing, at several stores (including Second Star) in Colorado which are listed on my website.

Dear Deer

Dear Deer,

It was so kind of you to stop by. I enjoyed our photo shoot and wanted to send you a few of my favorites. I hope you like the one showing off your crown of flora.

With admiration and love,

Laura

I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger award by Lee Cleaver,  and I’m breaking the rules because I’m supposed to answer a bunch of questions and nominate other bloggers, but if you follow me, you know my blog is one of photography, art, music, poetry, and Charlie.

Hey Lee, I answered one of your questions and described my blog in 5 words. Thanks for the nomination.

Denver Art Museum Part 3 – Lucas Samaras Corridor

The Light Show, an exhibition which examines light and reflection in a variety of ways will be on display through November 2020. I’m only sharing one part of this, the Lucas Samaras Corridor which is basically like being inside a kaleidoscope.

Denver Art Museum Part 2 – Monet Exhibit

I’ve always loved Impressionism and Monet is a sentimental favorite for me because I have fond memories of a special exhibit that I went to with my mom at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Monet traveled extensively so his work includes paintings in London, Amsterdam, Norway, the French and Italian Riviera on the Mediterranean, Normandy, Paris, and of course Giverny where he lived and created his famous Water Lilies work.

Beautiful use of light and shadow
Monet does an excellent job using reflection on the water

Denver Art Museum Part 1 – Jonathan Saiz

From the museum website:
Jonathan Saiz’s installation #WhatisUtopia is comprised of a column covered with 10,000 tiny drawings, paintings, and sculptures. By definition, utopia is “an imagined community or society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its citizens.” The artist employs social media to spark conversation and document responses about our ability to re-envision and embody a modern utopia. More than 10,000 artworks were made to be given away after the end of the exhibition.
