i was dying to check out the sauguaro hotel in palm springs with its sherbet colors. pam & i were v.v. excited when the nice people at the desk let us check out the interior courtyard with our big cameras. even a chimp with a camera could get gorgeous shots at this place. a crush of luscious color. not all of the bright colors in the pics above were captured at the saguaro though. palm springs is awash in white, grey, pale blue, mustard, and other pastels that are completely divine in this desert landscape. visual inspiration around every corner. a real feast for the senses.
the owner of the house we rented mentioned how he enjoyed the pool at night while listening to tony bennett. whaaa? oy. why didn't i think of that! sounds dreamy. next trip to PS i am so bringing frank sinatra & tony along for the ride. in the meantime, i zipped over to itunes today and got some tony bennett. i've been continuing my sketching & painting in the visual journals today with that on in the background. i'm in a late summer pleasure bubble of music and color. come over later. i'll hand you a frosty cucumber martini and we can sit out back and daydream together.
