This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to meet one of my fourth cousins. She lives about three hours north of us. As my partner also has a cousin in the area, it was a perfect trip – we were able to see everyone. I was very excited to find my cousin, as I have no other family members who live in this area of the world. While we were visiting my cousin we walked around her community. One home in the community was filled with gorgeous mosaic art (along with a garden outside the home). Meir Davidson, the artist who filled this home from end to end with gorgeous mosaic art is no longer alive, but his children maintain the home and share their father’s art with those visitors who are lucky enough to be introduced to it.
I love the piece that is pictured above, as it reminds me of my daughter. As my readers may never stumble upon this gorgeous community and the work of this wonderful artist, I will share a few more photos below – have a happy Sunday!
Today, 116 days ’til 40, I pause and am thankful for all the art that enters our lives – and I am reminded that often the greatest of artists are unknown, and in our own backyard.
